Periodontal Care

Complete Gum Treatment in Fanwood

Did you know that your gums are just as crucial as your teeth to good oral health? Gums, or gingiva, help hold your teeth in place. Also, gum infections can have serious consequences. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, and infected gums can contribute to numerous diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

It can be difficult to keep your gums in good shape on your own. Gum care requires diligent brushing and flossing as well as professional cleanings. However, we have you covered at South Ave Family Dentistry with gentle but comprehensive periodontal care.

Our team will inspect your gums to make sure everything looks good. In the event of a problem, we can provide different treatments to get your mouth healthy once again.

One of these treatments is known as scaling and root planing, also called deep cleaning. We will sanitize your gingival pockets, allowing your gums to heal from infection or potential infection.

A healthy gum smile.
