Gum Therapy

Gum Therapy

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is one of the most common oral hygiene problems. Unfortunately, gum disease is not harmless. On the contrary, it causes bad breath, tooth loss, and even decay. If you neglect gum disease, it may lead to infection and require surgical intervention.

Advantages of Gum Therapy

Gum therapy may reverse the damaging effects of gum disease. Once you enlist the help of dental professionals for gum therapy, you’ll start to notice a difference in your oral health. These significant advantages include improved gum and smile appearance, less bleeding, more minor gum recession, and better breath.

What Happens During Gum Therapy?

During gum therapy, you will experience scaling and root planing. With this procedure, a member of our team manually removes built-up plaque and tartar that are contributing to your gum irritation.

Another option on top of the scaling and root planing is a topical gum treatment that our team applies over the course of three weeks. In addition to this, laser treatments are available. Laser therapy is non-invasive and painless. This therapy removes the affected gum tissue to improve your overall health immediately.
