Just like it is important to prevent and treat cavities, it is important to treat the signs and symptoms of periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is one of the most common reasons why adults lose teeth. At Somerville Dental, our dentist can identify this disease and plan your treatment. Common initial symptoms include:
- Gum inflammation or swelling
- Gum redness
- Bleeding gums
- Gum recession
These initial symptoms, if not treated, can develop and lead to more serious symptoms and the eventual loss of bone structure and teeth. Call (908) 725-0200 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Asad Chaudhry and learn more about treatment for periodontal disease in Somerville, New Jersey.
