Treat Your Gums to Our Expert Care

Gum disease begins innocently enough. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugars contained in the foods and beverages you take in, leaving sticky plaque behind. Left alone, plaque can turn into tartar and begin to form pockets of infection below the gumline. Severe gum disease can even result in tooth loss.

Our goal is to catch and treat gum disease well before it ever gets to that level. For many of our patients, a “deep cleaning” consisting of scaling and root planing will get their gums back into shape. We’ll first remove (scale) tartar and bacteria below your gums, then smooth (plane) the roots to make it difficult for bacteria to grow back.

If your gum disease is more advanced, we offer comfortable LANAP treatment using a low-power laser. Using varying wavelengths of light, this innovative treatment will remove damaged gum tissue without harming any healthy tissue.

At the same time, the laser will seal the tissue so your gums can begin to heal. Best of all, LANAP treatment doesn’t require any cutting or stitches – unlike traditional gum surgery. Our patients love this aspect of it!
