Gum Disease Treatment

If you have Gum Disease we can treat it in a variety of ways depending on the severity of your condition.

Our mouths are full of bacteria which, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form “tartar” that brushing doesn’t clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.

Long-term treatment may include:

  • Prevention instruction
  • Simple and deep pocket cleanings
  • Root planing
  • Crown lengthening procedures
  • Soft tissue and/or bone grafting
  • Gingival or flap procedures
  • Soft tissue recontouring or removal (gingivoplasty or gingivectomy)
  • Hard tissue recontouring (osteoplasty)
  • Regenerative procedures
  • Implants
  • Maintenance cleanings (after treatment has been completed)
