If you are currently experiencing issues with bleeding or swollen gums, you may be in the first stages of periodontal disease. This serious dental condition affects almost 50 percent of Americans and is considered to be the leading reason for tooth loss in adult dental patients.

During the early stages of periodontal disease, however, it can often be reversed by visiting a qualified gum disease specialist or periodontist. These experts have the training and the knowledge needed to provide the best possible solutions for their patients. At Garden State Dental, we offer periodontal services designed to suit your needs and your budget. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced periodontist in Northern New Jersey, we will deliver the right options for you.

What Is a Periodontist?

The periodontists at our office have undergone advanced training in gum disease, dental implants and cosmetic surgeries in addition to the regular degree program completed by all licensed dentists. The word periodontics is derived from the combination of two Greek words:

  • “Perio” is the Greek word for around or in the same location.
  • “Dontic” is the word for tooth in the Greek language.

Periodontists, as this suggests, study the structures of the gums and the areas surrounding teeth to promote the healthiest mouth and the strongest teeth. This added training and specialized program ensures that your gum disease expert will diagnose your issues correctly and will provide you with the most practical and positive solutions for your teeth and gums. Our periodontics office will work with you to determine the most effective solutions for your current and future dental care needs. We are committed to providing high-quality, comprehensive services in periodontics in Northern New Jersey.

Why Do I Need a Gum Disease Expert?

If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, damage to the gum structures and deterioration of the bite, creating serious issues for you or other family members. Working with a gum disease specialist in our office is a practical step toward resolving issues and promoting the healthiest teeth and gums. Prompt treatment for gingivitis is necessary to stop the progress of this disease and to ensure that your teeth stay strong and protected against the serious and lasting damage caused by periodontal disease.

The Services Offered by Our Office

At Garden State Dental, we offer an array of services to provide you with the help you need to protect your teeth and to promote the strength and longevity of your bite. If you are looking for a qualified and expert periodontist in Northern New Jersey, give our team a call to schedule an appointment for any of the following services:

Gummy smile

These surgeries are used to remove excessive gum tissue from around front teeth and those teeth that are visible when you smile. This will help to eliminate the unattractive appearance of gum tissue that can build up around the roots of your teeth. Dentists may also use this procedure if you are having braces or other dental devices placed and they need more space free from gums to attach them to the teeth.

Crown lengthening surgeries

This procedure will eliminate issues that can occur when the gums block the sides of your teeth and prevent normal brushing and flossing. Crown lengthening is focused on exposing more of the tooth. Our team works with you to determine the most appropriate and practical options for your mouth and your needs.

Gum grafting

This is necessary in advanced cases of gum disease. By moving gum tissue from one part of your mouth to cover exposed roots, your dental care professional will provide you with the right solutions for resolving receding gums, which may be grafting or another similar procedure.

Periodontal disease treatment

Plans will vary depending on whether you are in the early stages of gingivitis or in the advanced stages of gum disease. Our experts will work with you to determine the best and most practical way to stop the progress of your illness and to provide you with the healthiest and strongest teeth possible. We are committed to helping you achieve your desired dental goals and the best possible state of dental health.

Dental Implant Placement

If you have already lost some teeth because of gum disease, dental implants are an ideal solution for replacing these teeth with crowns, bridges and dentures that may consist of just one tooth or a row of teeth. Our team will work with you to keep these treatment options as affordable as possible and to promote the healthiest teeth and gums for you now and in the future.

Oral pathology and oral cancer diagnosis

Since the incidences of oral cancer have been rising, it is important to get regular checks. Our periodontist can perform a cancer check and send any samples to the lab for diagnosis. Based on your results, we can help you with a treatment plan.

Regardless of which treatment plan you require, our team will provide you with the most cost-effective and painless options for your dental care in Northern New Jersey. Call our office today to schedule an initial examination and to touch base with our team of periodontists. We are committed to providing you with the most practical options for protecting the health of your teeth and for managing your dental care now and in the future.
