We Treat Gum Infections With a Deep Cleaning

Our doctors treat infected gums with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing:

  • First, we numb your mouth with local anesthesia. You can also receive dental sedation if you’d like.
  • Next, we remove plaque and bacteria accumulation from your teeth (scaling).
  • Then we smooth your tooth roots (root planing) to make it more difficult for bacteria to collect at the gumline.

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.

Common Questions About Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

Your gum disease treatment should be completely comfortable. We’ll numb your gums so you don’t feel any discomfort or pain during your treatment. In addition, if you’re nervous about your procedure, we offer oral conscious sedation for relaxing care. You simply take a small pill that will keep you relaxed throughout your procedure.

In its early stages, gum disease causes tenderness and bleeding, but no serious dental issues. If left untreated, though, it can progress to a stage that causes bone and tooth loss. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. The best course of action is to seek treatment at the first signs of disease.

One symptom that many people notice is gums that bleed when brushing. Other symptoms include gums that look swollen and/or bright red, gums that feel tender, and bad breath that won’t go away. It’s important to seek attention right away when you notice these symptoms. As with many dental problems, it is easier and less expensive to treat gum disease in its early stages.
