Give Your Gums Quality Care With Comprehensive Solutions

Gum disease can creep in quietly. It’s often hard to notice symptoms during the early stages. That’s why you need regular dental checkups. During a cleaning and exam, your dentist can spot those signs before the infection becomes more obvious. However, if it’s been a while since your last visit, you may notice symptoms of gum disease such as bleeding when you brush or floss, chronic bad breath, or red or inflamed gum tissue.

Whether your dentist spotted it during an exam or you noticed signs at home, our practice offers comfortable, non-surgical solutions. Depending on the extent of the problem, your dentist may suggest:

  • Deep Cleaning – Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that will treat your gum infection. Scaling gets rid of the tartar and plaque in and around your gumline. Root planing will smooth out your tooth roots to discourage reinfection.
  • Antibacterial Treatments – Antibacterial irrigation may be combined with a deep cleaning to further eliminate the disease.
  • Laser Procedure – Lasers can be a helpful part of eliminating infected gum tissue. A laser will target the diseased tissue gently and precisely when used as part of a scaling and root planing procedure.

If you feel nervous in any way, sedation is available. You can also receive treatment in one of our private patient care rooms for greater peace of mind.
