Gum Infection Treatment
Gum disease is essentially an infection in the soft tissues that support your teeth. Depending on how invasive the infection is within your gums, Dr. Paes will choose a treatment plan to stop the infection as quickly as possible and reverse any damage that has occurred. Early signs of periodontal disease can often be reversed with better oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing on a daily basis. This rids the mouth of extra bacteria and removes plaque before it hardens around or below the gumline. Dr. Paes also takes the time to discuss specific risk factors for gum disease with each patient. Your family history or smoking habit may require your gum health to be monitored more closely.
Scaling and Root Planing
When gum disease begins to produce symptoms such as bleeding, inflammation or recession, Dr. Paes may suggest a deep cleaning to reverse the condition. A deep cleaning is a painless and very effective therapy for treating gum disease. Using special dental instruments, we will thoroughly clean tartar buildup and bacteria from the tooth surfaces. This is known as scaling. The root planing portion of the procedure involves smoothing out your tooth roots to encourage the gums to reattach. Scaling and root planing represent an effective combination therapy that produces excellent, long-lasting results.
Regardless of how severe your gum disease is, you can trust Town Center Dental of LaGrange to offer affordable care and top-ranked service. We believe that everyone deserves to have a healthy and beautiful smile through all stages of life.
