How Do You Treat Gum Disease?
With prompt attention and intervention, our team can treat your condition and return your gum tissue to a healthy state. If you're having a problem with your gums, come in and see us so we will treat it right away. The treatment usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic, along with local antibiotic agents. It is important to have gum problems checked promptly, as gum disease left alone may eventually need treatment through surgery or extraction.
We also offer the following treatments and procedures:
- Dental Crown Lengthening: To remove excess gum tissue and reveal a more natural, relaxed smile.
- Gingivectomy: A minor surgical procedure performed to remove damaged or diseased gum tissue.
- Root Surface Debridement: An advanced form of deep cleaning that uses special instruments to remove hard built-up tartar and plaque from the surfaces of your roots and teeth.
- Ridge Preservation: A reconstructive procedure performed after a tooth extraction to prevent jawbone tissue loss.
