Help Your Gums Heal With a Deep Cleaning Treatment

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is a bacterial infection below the gumline. Over time, this infection can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth. If not treated early, it can spread to the bone surrounding the tooth, causing further problems that could require surgery. When we treat periodontal disease, our goal is to help your gums heal and reattach naturally to your teeth. We offer these nonsurgical treatment options:

  • Scaling – We’ll gently remove built-up tartar from beneath the gumline where normal brushing and flossing can’t reach.
  • Root Planing – We’ll smooth the surface of your tooth roots in the pockets just below the gumline. This helps prevent debris from collecting and causing bacteria to grow in these pockets.
  • Antibiotics – Help fight infection in your gums after scaling and root planing.

In the early stages of gum disease, symptoms can be hard to spot, so it’s important to schedule regular dental exams and cleanings to catch problems early. Contact us right away if you notice persistent bad breath, bleeding gums after brushing your teeth, swelling or redness in your gums, or receding gums.

Common Questions About Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for best results.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Your dentist and your hygienist will make sure that your gum disease treatment is as comfortable as possible. Before we begin any work, we’ll use a local anesthetic to completely numb the area we’re working on, and you can request sedation if desired. That way you’re assured of a pleasant treatment. In addition, you can ask any questions you want about your treatment, and we’ll answer them fully so you have all the information you need.

What are gum disease symptoms?

In its early stages, gum disease often shows no symptoms at all. That’s why it’s important to visit us regularly for a checkup. As gum disease progresses, your gums may turn red and puffy and become painful. You may also experience bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth. In advanced stages, your teeth can even become loose and eventually fall out.

Can I avoid gum disease?

The best way to avoid gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene, brushing twice a day and flossing daily as well. It’s also important to visit your dentist for professional dental cleanings at least twice a year. Since smokers are more likely to get gum disease, you’ll lessen your risk if you stop smoking. If you notice any signs of gum disease, notify your dentist right away. Treating it in its early stages will enable you to avoid the tooth loss that can result from advanced gum disease.
