Keep Your Gums Pink & Healthy With Thorough Care

It’s hard to tell if you have gum disease just by looking at your gums, but there are some warning signs you might notice. Your gums might bleed after brushing and flossing, you may have bad breath that won’t go away, or you may notice gums seem to be pulling away from your teeth. These are signs that something is wrong with your gum health. Regular checkups mean our team can spot these signs as early as possible.

However, if it’s your first time seeing us, your dentist will start by discussing your oral health history and doing a thorough exam. Our team will take digital X-rays and pictures of your smile with an intraoral camera. This helps your dentist find and diagnose gum disease. Here’s what you can expect for treatment:

  • Scaling – This is a deep cleaning that gets rid of tartar and plaque on your teeth and under your gums.
  • Root Planing – Your dentist will smooth out the roots of your teeth. This will stop harmful bacteria from returning. It will also reattach healthy gums to your teeth.
  • Follow-Up Care – You may need to return for more frequent cleanings to avoid future reinfections. Your dentist will discuss the details of all follow-up care during your visit.

If you’re worried about your gum health, don’t wait to make an appointment. If going to the dentist makes you nervous, we can give you laughing gas to help you relax and feel more comfortable during your visit.
