Gum Treatment

Undergoing a professional gum treatment is a great way to prevent the harmful effects of periodontal disease, or gum disease. We provide safe and effective gum treatments that help to eliminate gum disease and restore good oral health.

Plaque and tartar, the primary sources of gum disease, can accumulate on your teeth and deep underneath your gums, leading to infection, swelling and tissue damage. These conditions, if left untreated, can cause serious oral health issues, such as gum recession, tooth decay and tooth loss.

Our affordable gum treatment method, consisting of scaling and root planing, works to remove the plaque and tartar on and below the gumline. This highly-effective treatment helps to reduce the swelling and bleeding gums resulting from gum disease, returning good health to your gums and teeth.

This proven gum treatment method can generate amazing improvements in your oral health, yet the progression of gum disease can be completely stopped only through consistent brushing and flossing after the procedure. Gum disease is amongst the most common threats to your oral health, and good dental hygiene is a key component to its prevention.

If you have noticeable swelling or bleeding in your gums, or are experiencing any unusual gum pain or discomfort, you may be ready for a professional gum treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
