Reclaim Your Gum Health With Comprehensive Treatment

Gum disease can sneak up on you. The symptoms are often hard to spot in the early stages. If you’ve noticed bleeding when you brush or floss, swollen or inflamed gum tissue, or loose teeth, you’ll want to visit us for treatment right away. When you come in for an appointment, we’ll do a thorough exam and get X-rays of your mouth to understand the extent of the infection.

Depending on the state of your gums, Dr. Ruby may recommend:

  • Scaling and Root Planing – This deep cleaning procedure will remove the tartar in and around your gumline (scaling). Then your dentist will smooth out your tooth roots (root planing) to avoid reoccurring infections. We will numb your gums with local anesthesia for a comfortable procedure.
  • PerioProtect™ – These customized trays deliver disease-fighting medication to your gumline. It’s typically done alongside a deep cleaning or for mild cases of gum disease.
  • Laser Treatment – We’ll use a safe and gentle laser for the advanced stages of gum disease. It eliminates the infected gum tissue and encourages the growth of new tissue. You won’t feel a thing and can expect a quick healing process after treatment.

After your gum health has been restored, we’ll recommend follow-up treatments. Since gum disease can’t be cured entirely, it’s essential to stay on top of the infection with regular cleanings.
