What is Gum Disease?
A problem that affects about half of the American population, gum disease is an infection and inflammation of the gums that is typically caused by poor dental hygiene. When plaque and bacteria buildup along the gumline, infection can occur, leading to numerous symptoms and serious issues if left untreated. However, in its earlier stages, gum disease can be completely reversed before the infection spreads.
Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that we use to tackle gum disease and prevent permanent oral damage. First, we’ll clear all plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline to control harmful oral bacteria accumulation. This will help restore the health of your oral tissues and common symptoms like inflammation and tenderness. Then, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth so your gums can healthily reattach.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
Our soft tissue laser utilizes a beam of light to accurately remove any severely damaged and infected gum tissue to provide your gums with a chance to heal. It cauterizes the area at the same time it removes the tissue as well, eliminating the need for sutures, scalpels, bleeding, and a long recovery time. Plus, due to the precise nature of our soft tissue laser, this treatment is fast and comfortable.
