Improve Your Gums With Our Expert Treatment

Many people have gum disease without even being aware of it. In fact, it is estimated that nearly half of all Americans ages 30-64 have some form of gum disease! However, you don’t have to be one of them. Sabal Dental offers safe and effective treatment for your gums that will restore their health and get your overall oral health back on track. Our treatment involves “deep cleaning” your gums using scaling and root planing.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you need it, we offer sedation to help you relax. We also numb your gums with painless Oraqix local anesthesia.
  • We will first use an instrument called a scaler to remove built-up tartar and bacteria from your teeth and below your gumline.
  • Then we will plane, or smooth, your teeth roots so that it’s more difficult for bacteria to collect on them.
  • We may also use a low-power laser to remove damaged gum tissue. This treatment doesn’t require any scalpels.
  • This treatment may need to be repeated every few months if you are prone to gum disease.

Some patients with severe gum disease may also require gum recession treatment. This could include a gum graft to place gum tissue in the areas that are damaged. We also perform the innovative Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique at our Calallen office, a method that involves manipulating healthy gum tissue to cover your teeth roots. This minimally invasive technique requires no cutting or stitches.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Your gum disease treatment ought to be pain-free. Your doctor or hygienist will use Oraqix anesthetic that will immediately numb your gums so that you don’t feel any discomfort during your procedure. We also provide inhaled sedation utilizing laughing gas that will help remove any dental anxiety you might be feeling.

What causes gum disease?

Germs in your mouth feed upon food particles that get trapped in between your teeth and under your gums. Gradually, these bacteria can multiply and create inflammation and pockets of infection below your gumline. If neglected, these pockets can end up being unpleasant, leading to bleeding when you floss or brush and ultimately resulting in tooth loss.

How long does gum disease treatment take?

For the majority of gum disease treatments, it will take about an hour. Your dentist or hygienist will carefully eliminate all the built-up tartar and plaque from around and beneath your gumline so that your gums can begin to recover. Depending upon your situation, your treatment time could be longer or much shorter.
