Where Bleeding Gums Can Get the Help They Need

Did you know that nearly 75% of the U.S. population is suspected to be suffering from a mild to advanced form of periodontal (gum) disease? What’s worse is that many of them don’t even realize it. While this very common condition may start relatively harmless, untreated cases can quickly grow and threaten your healthy teeth and bone. That’s why our Roselle Park Dental & Implants team considers routine periodontal screenings essential for our patients. If we locate any signs of a troubling infection, effective treatment options are available to combat harmful bacteria and restore your oral health. Please contact our Roselle Park, NJ, location today if you have any questions or if you’re ready to schedule a first visit with one of our talented dentists. We’re happy to see the whole family!

Do I Have Gum Disease?

There are some common periodontal disease symptoms that patients can keep an eye out for when brushing and flossing at home, such as:

  • Bleeding gums, especially when practicing oral hygiene
  • Gum tissue that seems strangely red or swollen in appearance
  • A receding gumline (the teeth will appear longer over time)
  • Severe bad breath that lingers even after brushing/flossing/using mouthwash

If you notice any of these problems, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment. The earlier we can start treating this condition, the better the results will be for your oral health and overall well-being.

Scaling & Root Planing

This in-depth cleaning is performed with special dental instruments to remove bacteria and plaque from underneath the gumline (the “scaling” portion). Then, the rough tooth root surfaces are smoothed to promote healing and minimize the risk of further infection (the “planing” portion).

Laser Gum Treatment

With our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser, it’s easier than ever to treat deep periodontal pockets, remove diseased tissue, and eliminate infectious bacteria from your smile. The focused light energy is far superior to traditional scalpels, promoting healthy tissue regeneration and greatly speeding up the healing process while minimizing post-operative symptoms (like bleeding).

Antibiotic Treatment

Antibiotic treatment is often recommended as a supplement to the above two procedures, helping to effectively kill any remaining infectious pockets of bacteria that may have been initially missed. After laser treatment or scaling and root planing, we will place the necessary medication into your gum pockets, allowing it to disperse over time. Within weeks, it will kill the remaining bacteria and help to encourage proper gum healing.
