Successful Solutions for Fighting Gum Disease
- Laser Gum Therapy: Infected tissue and harmful bacteria are vaporized on the spot with laser gum therapy. Excellent for moderate to advanced stages of gum disease, laser therapy technology is minimally invasive, virtually painless, and performed without incisions or sutures. Visit our laser gum therapy page for more information on this advanced gum disease treatment.
- Osseous Surgery: A proven method of treating moderate to advanced gum disease, osseous surgery provides access to deep pockets of infection through retracted tissue. Our doctors gently remove tartar and plaque from tooth roots and smooth bony discrepancies caused by destructive bacteria. If necessary, bone grafting may also take place during this traditional gum disease treatment.
- Scaling and Root Planing: With refined skill and a gentle touch, our talented dental hygienists provide scaling and root planing therapy for patients having early to moderate gum disease. This non-surgical treatment enables thorough cleaning of root surfaces below the gum line, promoting reattachment of gum tissue to the tooth and reduction of periodontal pockets.
