Periodontal Disease Treatment (Gum Disease)

Be Proactive and Fight Against Periodontal Disease

Our team tries to treat any gum infections we encounter quickly before they have a chance to cause more serious problems. You can rest assured that if we notice a problem with your gums, we’ll deal with it right away:

  • If the disease is caught in the early stages of gingivitis, and no damage has been done, one to two regular cleanings will be recommended.  You will also be given instructions on improving your daily oral hygiene habits and having regular dental cleanings.
  • If damage is more extensive, we use a treatment called scaling and root planing. This is a two-step deep cleaning procedure. First, we remove tartar buildup on the roots of your teeth below your gumline. Then, we will smooth the surface of the tooth roots so the tooth can reattach to the gums more easily.
  • We can also prescribe an antibiotic to kill off any lingering bacteria.

You don’t have to wait until you see the telltale signs of early-stage gum disease. Instead, be proactive and come see us at Peachtree Corners Dentistry for a routine exam and gum disease treatment.
