Gum Therapy: Non-Surgical
Our dentists provides non-surgical gum therapy for patients who are experiencing gingivitis, gum disease and other problems. Common symptoms of gum disease include inflamed or bleeding gums, receding gums, and loose teeth.
The best way to avoid these problems is by brushing and flossing every day. Brushing and flossing eliminates the plaque that is responsible for gum disease. To determine if you have gum disease, you will have to come in for a checkup. Our dentists will inspect your teeth and gums to see if gum disease is present. If the infection is found and at a fairly serious stage, we may recommend non-surgical gum therapy as an effective way to eradicate the gum disease. This involves a variety of techniques, including curettage, root planning, and local medication.
