Periodontal Therapy

Did you know that periodontal or gum disease is common in one out of every five adults? It’s characterized by some common symptoms such as swollen and red gums that bleed easily or gums that are visibly receding away from teeth. Bacteria is the pesky culprit to blame for these kinds of infections and can be linked to diseases such as diabetes, strokes, and heart disease that greatly affect not just your oral but overall health. Aside from daily brushing and flossing regimens, we offer these additional treatment options:

  • Root planing and scaling is an extremely effective method for removing plaque from between the gums and the teeth, right down to the roots. The procedure also works well at shrinking areas of damage below the gum line and along a tooth’s root. Since plaque prefers irregular, sticky surfaces, scaling and root planning can help smooth surfaces making them less desirable territory for buildup to occur.
  • Pinhole gum surgery, invented and implemented by John Chao, D.D.S. is a scalpel- and suture-free procedure that treats gum recession and loss of gum tissue as a result of periodontal disease. This state-of-the-art method offers less discomfort for patients post therapy, faster recovery than traditional grafting, no need for donor tissue, and natural results. For more information, please read our page on Gum Recession.
  • Arestin may also be an effective periodontal disease treatment option following a root scaling and planing procedure. This antibiotic gel is conveniently placed directly into a periodontal pocket, ensuring effective treatment exactly at the source of the gum disease site without exposing the rest of the body to antibiotics, fighting the disease directly for two weeks.
