Any structure needs a good foundation to succeed. It is vital that the bone and gums that support your teeth be in the best shape possible to allow your smile to last a lifetime. There are many documented connections between your overall health and the health of your periodontal tissues, including an increased risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and pregnancy complications.
Signs of periodontal disease include:
* Redness or bleeding of the gums
* Recurrent swelling
* Pockets between the teeth
* Receding gum line
* Loose teeth
* Bad taste
* Mouth odor
If you feel that you may be experiencing these symptoms, Call our Verona, NJ dental office to reserve your periodontal assessment with Dr. Stephen Sandler. Patients from Verona, Cedar Grove, Montclair, and Essex County visit us for quality dental care.
