Periodontal Therapy in Haddon Heights, NJ

The foundation of excellent oral wellbeing begins with your gum health. At The Centre of Dentistry in Haddon Heights, we will assess your gums for potential problems, including signs of gum disease. We’ve had a periodontist on staff since 1983, and with periodontal therapy, we can make sure your gums are returned to optimum health.

The primary reason American adults experience tooth loss is due to gum disease. Oral bacteria can also be absorbed into the bloodstream and cause systemic problems, such as heart disease and strokes. Gum disease has also been linked to diabetes, low birth weights, and cancer. That’s why your gum health is so important, and why getting periodontal therapy can stave off more serious gum health issues.

At The Centre for Dentistry in South Jersey, we believe that keeping your teeth and gums in excellent condition means better health overall! When you come in for your treatment, we may recommend periodontal therapy in combination with other procedures in order to protect your smile.

Your gum health is imperative. Please come to the Haddon Heights location of The Centre for Dentistry if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Pockets forming around teeth
  • Discolorations, especially redness
