Gingivitis Treatment—Your First Line of Defense
Patients generally do not feel pain while suffering from gum disease. However, that does not mean the plaque and bacteria under your gums aren't doing damage. Attain a clean slate with our comprehensive gingivitis treatment. Our dentist may recommend this procedure after conducting your routine dental checkup. The gingivitis treatment breaks up plaque around and under the gum line, so bacteria cannot form and eat away at your bones. After this treatment, we inform you of the measures you can take at home to keep this condition under control. Remember, a long-lasting smile depends on proper treatment and a proactive daily routine. We empower you to incorporate a winning strategy for oral care.
Periodontal Treatment Helps Restore Gum Tissue
The causes for advanced gum disease, including periodontitis, vary from patient to patient. Hereditary factors, oral care habits, and pre-existing conditions can all contribute to advanced gum disease. However, the consequences are the same—bacteria that has sufficiently infiltrated under the gum line will continue to eat at the periodontal bone, which will cause recessed gums, exposed roots and, at extreme cases, tooth loss. Fight back with periodontal treatment.
Our dentist uses a nonsurgical procedure to treat periodontitis. Better known as "deep cleaning" or root scaling and planing, these periodontal treatments break away and remove tartar and calculus from the gums. This purges the bacteria colonies and protects your gums from further recession. After your initial treatment, our dentist will incorporate monitoring methods as part of your checkup to determine whether additional treatments, or more advanced techniques, are necessary.
