Happy 2023! We don’t know about you, but we can’t believe the holiday season has come and gone and we have entered into a new year!

Gum Disease

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we are passionate about the oral health of our patients. This is one of the reasons we recommend patients visit us regularly for routine oral hygiene examinations. During these visits, we not only clean your teeth, but we check for other diseases and conditions as well. One of the diseases we inspect for is gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a chronic infection in your gums that causes damage to the tissue and the jawbone that support the teeth. There are two forms of gum disease: the mild condition known as gingivitis and the more serious condition known as periodontitis. If gum disease remains untreated, it can lead to serious oral and overall health complications.
