Recover Your Gum Health With Our Periodontal Treatments

It can be upsetting to know your gums aren’t as healthy as they should be, given that advanced gum disease results in serious problems like tooth loss. What matters is, you are getting the help you need! We use proven but innovative procedures for your treatment process. One of the ways we eliminate infection is with a process called scaling and root planing. Here is how it works:

  • Our scaling and root planing process eliminates the bacteria, tartar, and plaque above and below your gumline.
  • We’ll then utilize antibacterial techniques that help your gums heal and reduce the chances for reoccurrence of infections.
  • For more advanced cases, we can use growth factors such as PRF treatments that use your own body’s powerful abilities to heal itself. With this process, your own blood cells stimulate the immune response and tissue repair.
  • We may also follow up this deep cleaning procedure with Perio Protect® which delivers a medication that fights the infection.

When you visit our practice, we do everything we can to help you avoid surgical procedures. If you do need surgery, though, you can trust the skills of a board-certified periodontist. He can perform a grafting procedure to rebuild your bone or gums, if needed. If you’re nervous about your appointment, we offer three kinds of sedation to ease your nerves. We also have amenities like pillows and blankets to comfort you.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease can be treated in a variety of ways, but the most conservative method is known as scaling and root planing. This is where your dentist or hygienist removes infection caused by bacterial plaque below and around your gumline and then smooths out your tooth roots so bacteria doesn’t return. Advanced gum disease may require other procedures to rebuild recessed tissue, like grafting, to prevent tooth and bone loss.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.

What are gum disease symptoms?

In its very early stages, gum disease often shows no signs or symptoms. As it progresses, however, your gums may become red and puffy and painful to the touch. Your gums may also bleed when you brush or floss. If left untreated, gum disease can cause gum recession and ultimately tooth and bone loss. Getting regular checkups is crucial to stopping the cycle of gum disease.
