Save Your Smile With Periodontal Treatment
Gum disease is the top cause of tooth loss in America. Treating it can help you avoid this problem. Our treatment is a two-part process:
- Scaling – This is similar to what we do during a routine dental cleaning, but we go below the gumline to remove plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth.
- Root Planing – The second step in the procedure is smoothing the surface of the roots. This makes it easier to reconnect your teeth and your gums. It also makes it more difficult for bacteria to bond to your roots.
If you have any anxiety about this treatment, you can have it done painlessly at our practice. With The Wand®, we can deliver local anesthetic without you feeling anything. Our sedation options can also keep you calm and relaxed.
Focus on Preventive Care
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nearly half of all adults in the United States have advanced gum disease. Gum infections can develop for a number of reasons, including poor oral hygiene or chronic dry mouth. Good oral hygiene habits, including regular dental cleanings and exams, can keep your gums healthy. We also offer dry mouth treatment to reduce your gum problems.
