Gum disease is regarded as one of the more common, but serious conditions that patients experience. This is a major problem and if patients do not receive the correct treatment at the recommended time, then their dental health can experience long-lasting damage. This means it is important to be able to identify the symptoms of gum disease so they can be treated early.

The symptoms of periodontal or gum disease include:

  • Sore or bleeding gums
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Dark red, or purple color of gums
  • Teeth mobility in various degrees
  • Sometimes , pus draining on the gums

If periodontal disease is caught early, it has a higher chance of being successfully treated before it truly devastates your oral health. Our Belleville and Nutley dentists understand the recommended steps to treat this condition and restore the health of your gums.

Following a diagnosis, it is important to make regular trips to the dentist. While many patients are concerned or anxious about receiving treatment, our approach is different at Atlantic Family Dentistry. We understand your concerns and design our treatment facility around ensuring that the treatment plan you will be receiving is the most suitable and accommodating for you.
