Treatment and Prevention of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to tooth loss, damaged gums, and other complications. Our variety of treatment and prevention services can help keep your oral health in good shape.

Scaling and root planing

A healthy tooth root is smooth and clean, but when tartar builds up along the gums it creates jagged imperfections. The surrounding gum tissue becomes irritated and infected if left untreated. We use special scaling and planing tools to remove the tartar buildup and prevent bacterial infections.

Tooth extraction

A damaged or compromised tooth is a risk to your overall oral health. We provide tooth extractions under a local anesthetic to prevent further damage. If you’re anxious about needing a tooth extracted, our comforting staff will be happy to discuss other sedation options.

Bone grafts

If you’re needing a dental implant but the bone of your jaw has lost too much density, we can provide bone grafts to strengthen the area.

We’re happy to provide preventative cleaning procedures as well as restorative treatments for gum disease. Give us a call to book your periodontics appointment today!
