Promote Periodontal Health Through Proper Care

Gum problems should be taken seriously. When left untreated, periodontal infections can contribute to cardiovascular disease, diabetes complications, heart attacks, strokes, and other issues. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may benefit from one or more of these treatments:

  • Scaling and Root Planing – Scaling is similar to a professional cleaning, but we go deeper to remove tartar buildup around the roots of your teeth. Root planing is done to smooth the surface of your roots. This aids in helping your teeth reattach to your gums.
  • Laser Treatment – Lasers offer a better way to remove infected tissue. They also preserve more of your healthy tissue. The laser has an added benefit of sealing healthy tissues, often without the need for sutures. This can speed up your recovery compared to gum surgery that involves a scalpel.
  • Antibiotics – In some cases, an antibiotic may be prescribed to remove harmful bacteria and reduce your risk of a recurring infection.

Our caring team can make this process simple for you. If you have any anxiety about your treatment, talk to us about sedation options to ensure your comfort and to keep you calm and relaxed.

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 build ups 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 accumulates. 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 smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Our team is dedicated to providing you the most comfortable treatment possible. We use a local anesthetic that will numb your gums, so you don’t feel any discomfort. If laser treatment is needed, it is a quick and painless method for eliminating infection from your gums. In addition, dental sedation is available to help you relax during your treatment.
