Gum Disease Treatments
Gum disease is a common oral health issue that occurs when plaque and tartar buildup at the gum line irritates and inflames the soft tissue causing the destruction of soft tissue volume and jawbone density. This can lead to a number of concerns including dental shifting, chronic bad breath, tooth loss, and even overall health conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease have been linked to gum disease.

Scaling & Root Planing
Our first treatment step is typically to increase the number of professional teeth cleanings patients undergo each year. Then, we precede to the more advanced laser scaling and root planing procedures. After this treatment, we’ll move on to antibiotic therapies and periodic maintenance cleanings to prevent the recurrence or advancement of the disease.
