Periodontal Therapy

Swollen or tender gums may seem like nothing more than a nuisance, but left untreated, severe periodontal disease may develop. In the past, surgery offered the only treatment for gum disease, but modern technology gives dentists new, less painful choices. Our soft-tissue laser can target precise pockets of inflammation and vaporize harmful bacteria and damaged tissue. We’re also pleased to introduce PerioProtect – the latest alternative to periodontal surgery with extremely effective results.

PerioProtect – Non-Surgical Gum Treatment

In the past, if gum disease progressed to an advanced stage, removing the diseased tissue was your only option. Now, for patients with mild to moderate gum disease, we can create comfortable trays that you will wear at home. The trays deliver medication to the affected area and prevent saliva from washing it away. Patients have had great success with PerioProtect, and we’re excited to offer this treatment at our office.

Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loosening or loss, and it can also create health complications for diabetics and pregnant women. New studies show that gum disease is also a significant risk factor in heart attack and strokes. If you are making the effort to lower your cholesterol, and if you're watching your weight, exercising, or have stopped smoking, it only makes good sense to eliminate another significant risk factor. Early detection of periodontal disease allows for simple preventive treatments that can deter the spread of the disease and save you from potential serious health problems.
