Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment in Teaneck

Providing Exceptional Gum Care to Our Patients

Taking care of your gums, in addition to your teeth, is vital to your oral health. Periodontal disease—also known as gum disease—is a degenerative condition or infection that affects your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth. At Plaza Dentistry, our dentist offers periodontal disease treatment in Teaneck and beyond. Our team provides first-class treatment, maintenance, and care for a range of periodontal issues.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Healthy gums should be pink in color without any pockets between teeth and gums. Bacteria from plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth can infect the gums, leading to disease. Gum disease can cause gum recession, bone loss, or even loose teeth. Early intervention is essential in the treatment of periodontal disease.

Symptoms of periodontal disease may include:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Separating or loose teeth
  • Pus between teeth and gums
  • Tender, swollen, or red gums
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Changes in bite

Periodontal Maintenance for Continued Health

Our team is dedicated to restoring your oral health. Depending on a patient's specific condition, we may recommend various courses of action. As an initial deep cleaning and to maintain healthy gum tissue after treatment, we will often perform root planing and scaling. Scaling removes plaque, bacteria, and calculus from above and below the gum line, and root planing smooths the surface of the teeth roots so gums can better reattach.

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove bacteria deposits that have settled deeper beneath the gums. As part of this treatment, we will surgically pull the gums away from the teeth to clean out these bacterial colonies attached to the tooth roots. This surgical periodontal procedure may be combined with bone grafting or gum grafting to facilitate treatment and healing.

We're here to help treat not just the symptoms but the cause of periodontal disease in Teaneck patients. Contact us for treatment today. We are offering virtual consults through teledentistry!

Here it Straight from Our Patients Mouths
  • "The "norm" is to dread going to the dentist. Plaza Dentistry puts that myth to rest. As soon as you walk in you are greeted with Ruth at the front desk. She is calming and very welcoming every time. Gilde always makes it personal and friendly. Everything is clean and sanitized. Janet, the hygienist, gave my teeth the clean of all cleans! She has the best personality, super thorough, a top notch professional. We hit it off immediately! Dr. Eli has a kind nature and is efficient in his craft...genuine guy! Everyone is always smiling which puts me at ease. When I leave I’m the one smiling! Highly recommend Plaza Dentistry! Thank you!!!"

  • "I had a great experience with the office. Including the hygienist that took her time to make sure I felt comfortable throughout the whole visit. I have been to this office in the past but due to personal reasons I hadn’t gotten back but now I’m definitely coming here as my dental cleans ups or anything major that needs to be done. Everyone is super friendly and it’s a super clean place very professional."

    - Angeles Gamez

  • "I walked in off the street with a dental emergency and extreme dental phobia. Dr Shteingart calmly and kindly made me feel comfortable and confident to let him take care of my issue. His staff is amazing, I met Ruth and Tatiana who treated me with ultimate kindness and understanding and reassurance. I now have a dentist for the first time in many, many years."

    - Barbara Nowlin

  • "Dr. Eli is very professional and very knowledgeable. He is very honest with his diagnosis, I normally feel very nervous when I have to go to a dentist, but he and his staff make you feel very confortable. My entire family is very happy with him."
