Gum Disease Treatments for Healthy, Lasting Smiles
- Laser Gum Therapy
- For those suffering with moderate to severe gum disease, minimally invasive laser gum therapy painlessly eradicates infected gum tissue and destructive oral bacteria without relying on incisions or sutures. Our BIOLASE® dental laser targets only diseased areas, leaving healthy sites intact and the gums on the fast-track to healing. Visit our laser gum therapy page to learn more about this innovative service.
- Osseous Surgery
- This traditional method of treating moderate to severe gum disease enables access to tartar, plaque and bacteria located deep beneath the gum line. Through gentle tissue retraction, we smooth root and bone surfaces, even supplementing bone volume if necessary with grafting procedures.
- Scaling and Root Planing
- Ideal for early to moderate gum disease, scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure performed by our talented dental hygienists. This treatment clears the root surfaces of tartar and plaque deposits, encouraging gum tissue reattachment to tooth structure and a reduction in periodontal pocket depths.
