To the untrained eye, it can be hard to tell if you have infected gums. That’s why your routine dental checkups are so important. Only a skilled professional can detect gum disease in its earliest stage and treat it effectively.
February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, so your Jersey City, NJ dentists encourage you to give your gums some extra TLC for the sake of your oral and overall health.
What does that look like?
It starts with daily brushing and flossing. Both are essential steps in keeping your mouth clean of the food particles and debris that harmful bacteria depend on for fuel. You also need to visit us regularly so we can remove plaque from your teeth and examine your mouth for any sign that you may have infected gums.
If you do, we can provide gentle but effective gum disease therapy to stop the infection from spreading, and if caught early enough, reverse it before it destroys your gum tissues, jawbone, and ultimately, your teeth!
Don’t ignore infected gums. Give them some extra TLC! Call Strong Roots Dental today at 551-244-6422 for an appointment in Jersey City and 201-992-8600 to visit our Hoboken office. You can also request an appointment online.
