Enjoy Pink & Healthy Gums Again

As more bacteria collect in pockets between your teeth and gums, your risk of tooth and bone loss increases. Our gum disease treatment is designed to address the early stages of disease and prevent its progression. Here’s what you can expect from our treatment process:

  • Comprehensive Examination – Our experienced dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your gums and teeth, evaluating the extent of gum disease and identifying any underlying issues.
  • Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing) – This procedure removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline and smooths your tooth roots. It eliminates bacteria and promotes gum reattachment.
  • Oral Hygiene Education – Our team will provide personalized oral hygiene instructions to help you maintain proper dental care at home, including brushing techniques and proper flossing.
  • Follow-up Appointments – Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress, ensure the effectiveness of the treatment, and make any necessary adjustments. No insurance? You can still take good care of your gums. Our Smile Club has a plan for gum disease patients that includes three perio maintenance cleanings.
  • Laser Treatment – For more advanced cases, we can use advanced laser technology to precisely target and eliminate bacteria from the gum pockets. This aids in the healing process and reduces the risk of reinfection.
  • Osseous Surgery – If necessary, we can reduce the size of the pockets between your teeth roots and gums by eliminating bacteria and repairing these areas.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and under your gumline. Your hygienist or dentist will use special instruments to carefully get your gums back into shape, or they will use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back at the same time.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that builds up around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulate. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

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 smooths your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.
