At Silver Leaf Dentistry, our team performs gum disease treatment with a mixture of tried-and-true methods and state-of-the-art instruments. The process is mostly divided into two related steps called scaling and root planing:

  • We use the gentle vibrations of our ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque from your tooth surface and below your gum line.
  • Then, we perform a detailed cleaning of your tooth roots to remove bacteria from between your teeth and gums, which reduces inflammation.

If you are nervous about your treatment, we have several ways to help relieve your dental anxiety. We will also numb you if necessary for optimal comfort.

To know for sure if you have gum disease, you should visit our office to get a professional diagnosis. That said, you may have gum disease if your gums bleed easily while brushing and flossing, feel tender, or appear swollen or red. You may also notice chronic bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth or teeth that are highly sensitive to hot or cold temperatures.

Keep your whole mouth healthy! Call Silver Leaf Dentistry today for gentle gum disease treatment in Longmont, CO: 720-504-2539.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to eliminate gum disease from your mouth. We offer deep cleaning using scaling and root planing to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around your gumline. Using an ultrasonic scaler, we can painlessly remove infection from the tooth’s surface. Then we smooth out the damaged area over the root to encourage regrowth of the gum tissue.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

At our practice gum disease treatment isn’t painful at all. That’s because we make sure to numb your gums with a topical anesthetic and then use an ultrasonic scaler that gently vibrates to clean under the gumline. There’s no need for cutting or stitching. Most patients need no more than local anesthesia to stay comfortable, but we can provide more dental anxiety relief if needed.

Do I need gum disease treatment?

If your gums feel tender or bleed while brushing, you may need gum disease treatment. These are symptoms of early-stage gum disease. If the disease progresses, you may also notice that your gums begin receding away from your teeth and that you have bad breath no matter how often you brush.

Can I avoid gum disease?

The best way to avoid gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene, brushing twice a day and flossing daily as well. It’s also important to visit your dentist for professional dental cleanings at least twice a year. Since smokers are more likely to get gum disease, you’ll lessen your risk if you stop smoking. If you notice any signs of gum disease, notify your dentist right away. Treating it in its early stages will enable you to avoid the tooth loss that can result from advanced gum disease.
