Periodontal (Gum) Health in New Jersey

Smiles are picture perfect when gums are pink and healthy.  Periodontal disease occurs if oral hygiene is poor and plaque is inadequately removed from teeth.  Are your gums puffy and red?  Do they bleed when you brush? 

Dr. Sternberg regularly evaluates your periodontal health.  He measures and charts bone health.  If your goal is to maintain your teeth for a lifetime, periodontal health is a mandatory component of each dental exam. 

Periodontal disease has been medically linked to increased possibility to develop heart disease.  More people in America loose their natural teeth to gum disease than dental caries. 


Plaque develops and sticks to teeth constantly.  Proper brushing and flossing help to remove plaque while it is still a soft whitish colored film on the teeth.  When plaque is not physically removed while still soft it hardens like plaster on a wall and must be removed professionally by a dentist or hygienist.  Plaque forms behind, between and on every surface of teeth crowns, bridges and even dentures
