What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common dental issue that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. At Rocky Hills Dentistry in Rocky Hill, New Jersey, Dr. Bhumika Patel offers comprehensive gum disease treatment to help patients manage and overcome this condition. Gum disease typically starts with gingivitis, characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. If left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, leading to more severe problems such as tooth loss and damage to the jawbone.

Dr. Patel’s gum disease treatment focuses on eliminating the infection, reducing inflammation, and restoring the health of the gums and supporting structures. She uses advanced diagnostic tools to assess the extent of the disease and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s needs. Early detection and treatment are crucial in preventing the progression of gum disease and maintaining overall oral health.

How Rocky Hill Family Dentistry can help

Gum disease treatment at Rocky Hills Dentistry offers numerous benefits for patients. Here are some key advantages:

Improved Oral Health: Treating gum disease significantly improves your oral health. By eliminating the infection and reducing inflammation, Dr. Patel helps restore the health of your gums and the structures that support your teeth. This can prevent further dental issues such as tooth decay, abscesses, and bone loss, ensuring a healthier mouth overall.

Prevention of Tooth Loss: Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. By seeking treatment early, you can prevent the progression of the disease and avoid tooth loss. Dr. Patel’s comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment helps preserve your natural teeth and maintain the integrity of your smile.

Enhanced Aesthetics: Healthy gums are an essential component of a beautiful smile. Treating gum disease can improve the appearance of your gums, making them look healthier and more attractive. This can boost your confidence and encourage you to smile more freely.

Reduced Risk of Systemic Health Issues: Research has shown a link between gum disease and various systemic health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems. By treating gum disease, you can reduce your risk of developing these serious health conditions, contributing to better overall health and well-being.

Fresher Breath: One of the common symptoms of gum disease is persistent bad breath (halitosis) caused by bacterial infection in the gums. Treating gum disease can help eliminate the infection and improve your breath, giving you more confidence in social interactions.

Pain Relief: Gum disease can cause discomfort and pain, especially when it progresses to more severe stages. Treatment helps alleviate these symptoms, providing relief from gum pain, swelling, and sensitivity. This can make eating, speaking, and maintaining oral hygiene more comfortable.
