We Treat Gum Infections With a Deep Cleaning

Our doctors treat infected gums with a two-part deep dental cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. First, we remove plaque and other debris where bacteria accumulates from your teeth (scaling), and then we smooth your tooth roots (root planing) to make it more difficult for bacteria to collect at the gumline.

See Us If You Have Gum Disease Symptoms

So how do you know if you have unhealthy gums? A professional screening is the only way to know for sure. See us right away if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Tender, red gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Gums pulling away from your teeth
  • Teeth that feel loose
  • Chronic bad breath and/or bad taste in mouth

It’s important to treat gum disease as it’s the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, more than half of adults have some form of infection. Not only that, but research has linked gum disease to serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and low birth weight in babies.
