Count On Us for Expert Gum Disease Care

At our office, you will receive more than just basic service for your gums. You can receive the same advanced treatment and care that you would expect a specialist’s office. Our board-certified periodontist has advanced training to get your gums back in shape.

Depending on how advanced your infection is, you might need one or more of the following:

  • Scaling and Root Planing – This therapeutic cleaning technique removes plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth. Our ultrasonic scalers make this easier than traditional scalers.
  • Laser Dentistry – By using a dental laser, we can remove infected tissue without the need for gum surgery with a scalpel. This preserves more of your healthy gum tissue and allows you to recover quicker.
  • Gum Recession Treatment – In more advanced cases of periodontal disease, your gums may separate from your teeth. Using the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, our in-house periodontist offers a minimally invasive option for restoring your gumline to its original position.

If you have any dental anxiety about gum treatment, you can take comfort knowing that we offer local anesthetic with painless Oraqix and dental sedation to keep you relaxed.

Take Action to Protect Your Smile

A majority of people will experience a gum infection during their lives. Many people are not aware that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. When left untreated, periodontal infections can affect more than your smile. This disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes complications, and other systemic health concerns. We mention this to stress how important healthy gums are. It’s why we make every effort to find the right treatment for your situation.

Do not wait to contact us if you are showing the symptoms of a gum infection, such as:

  • Red And swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Chronic bad breath (halitosis)
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

We’ll treat your condition as well as any underlying factors, such as dry mouth, which could raise your risk of periodontal problems.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Rest assured we will make sure your gum disease treatment is as pleasant as possible. We’ll first numb your gums using Oraqix, a comfortable local anesthetic that our patients love. We also offer dental sedation in the form of laughing gas that will help you fully relax during your procedure. Plus, we’ll be as gentle as possible when performing your treatment so that you leave completely satisfied.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease can occur when particles of food are left between the teeth for the bacteria in your mouth to feed on. The bacteria produce a sticky substance called plaque. Over time, plaque can harden into tartar both above and below your gumline, eventually creating inflammation and forming pockets of bacteria. Left untreated, you can lose both your teeth and bone as the gum disease spreads.

How long does gum disease treatment take?

Most patients can expect their gum disease treatment to take about an hour. We’ll first numb your gums so that you don’t feel any discomfort while we work. Then we’ll use special instruments to remove tartar and bacteria around and below your gumline. Finally, we’ll smooth your tooth roots to make it more difficult for bacteria to collect there.
