Catch Gum Problems Before They Worsen

We recommend that you get a dental cleaning and exam twice a year to help spot signs of gum disease, cavities, and other problems early on. The sooner we can treat your gum disease, the better the outcome and the quicker your gums can get back to a healthy state. If we see any evidence of gum disease, we can deep clean your teeth, either using special instruments or a low-power dental laser. This treatment involves:

  • Scaling – We’ll gently remove plaque and tartar from around and beneath your gumline. We’ll get down into the pockets that have formed to rid your gums of problem-causing bacteria. Once this is done, your gums can begin to heal.
  • Root Planing – This process involves smoothing your tooth roots to make it difficult for bacteria to collect in these areas.

In addition, if your gums have receded we can perform a gum grafting procedure. We’ll take tissue from another area of your mouth and place it in the areas where you’ve lost gum tissue. This treatment will help restore your gums to health and make them more attractive.

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.
