Periodontal, or gum, disease can cause more than just an unsightly smile and swollen or bleeding gums. If gingivitis is not treated, periodontal disease can cause tooth loss and a host of other serious health problems. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria in plaque that attack the soft tissues in your mouth. At Anderson Dental, we offer a number of periodontal treatments to counter the effects of gum disease. We can reverse the damage if we detect periodontal disease early. If it is detected late and results in tooth loss, we can restore your mouth using a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures. To find out more about periodontics and our other cosmetic dentistry procedures, contact Anderson Dental in Fort Lee, New Jersey today.
