Healthy Gums are Essential for a Healthy You

Impacting nearly 50% of adults aged 30 and older, periodontal disease attacks gum tissue and bone that support teeth. Plaque, a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva caused by inadequate oral hygiene, is the primary culprit. When plaque remains on your teeth at the gum line, it turns into calculus (tartar) that can only be removed with a professional dental cleaning.

When the gum infection progresses unchecked, advanced gum disease called periodontitis can result in deep periodontal pockets between your gums and teeth and eventual tooth loss.  At Glenwood Premier Dental, we offer healing periodontal disease treatment in Hazlet, NJ, whether you have gingivitis or advanced disease. And the best news is if your gums need professional attention, you may be a candidate for minimally-invasive laser gum disease treatment at our practice!

Gum Disease Symptoms

  • Pus between teeth and gums (when gums are pressed)

Affordable Gum Disease
for All Stages

Periodontal disease treatment at Glenwood Premier Dental depends on the type and severity of your disease. Gingivitis treatment in Hazlet, NJ, is essential for stopping early gum disease from wreaking havoc on your soft tissue, underlying bone, and pearly whites. To ensure financial concerns don’t stand in the way of reversing any stage of gum disease, we accept many insurance plans and partner with several third-party financing companies.

Restorative Soft Tissue Treatments


Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is required when a tooth needing restoration is inaccessible and deep below the gum tissue. The procedure involves adjusting the gum tissue and bone level around the tooth to ensure secure crown placement. For cosmetic purposes, crown lengthening in Hazlet, NJ, exposes more of the tooth surface to lessen the appearance of a gummy smile.


Scaling and Root Planing

The first step in treating gum disease is a thorough two-part deep cleaning. Scaling removes plaque and tartar deposits below your gum line. Root planing involves creating a smooth surface for gum tissue to heal and reattach to your teeth.


Gingival Grafts

When you have gum recession, this increases the risk of bacteria growth, tooth sensitivity, and decay that can infiltrate and infect tooth roots. During a gingival graft, a thin piece of tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth or another area to restore adequate gum tissue to the impacted area and cover the exposed portion of the root.



If gum tissue has pulled away from your teeth and created deep pockets at your gum line, you may be a candidate for a gingivectomy. Whether performed with tiny surgical tools or lasers, this procedure removes infected gum tissue and reshapes your gum line. Sometimes, we perform a gingivectomy in Hazlet, NJ, to treat gummy smiles or an uneven gum line.



The lingual frenum is the tissue that connects the tongue to the bottom of your mouth, while the labial frenum connects your upper gums to your two front teeth. Often called tongue-tie surgery, a lingual frenectomy removes restrictive tissue to resolve nursing, eating, and speech issues in babies and toddlers. A labial frenectomy involves removing extensive tissue to help prevent front tooth gaps and future orthodontics.


Pinhole Surgical Technique

Traditional gum grafts involve scalpels and sutures to treat gum recession. In contrast, the minimally-invasive Chao Pinhole® surgical technique only requires one tiny hole in your gum tissue. The gum tissue is gently loosened and repositioned through this hole with specialized tools to cover exposed tooth roots.
