Fight Back With Periodontal Treatment to Save Your Smile

Healthy gums feel firm and look pink. When you notice changes, such as swelling or bleeding when you brush or floss, it’s time to talk to John A. Dobry, DDS. As part of our general dentistry services, we provide a two-part nonsurgical treatment:

  • Scaling – This is the process of removing plaque and tartar buildup on your gums and the roots of your teeth.
  • Root Planing – During this step, we smooth the surface of your roots. This helps your gums reattach to your teeth as your gums heal.

For many people, this will be more than enough to remove the infection. It also sets the stage for you to maintain your healthy gums with regular dental cleanings and exams. To keep you comfortable during your periodontal care, we can deliver a local anesthetic painlessly with The Wand®. We also offer dental sedation to help you relax.

Periodontal problems are a major cause of tooth loss in the United States. That’s why it’s so important to get help as soon as you notice the signs of a gum infection:

  • Red or Swollen Gums

  • Sore or Tender Gums
  • Lingering Bad Breath
  • Receding Gums
  • Loose Teeth

If you notice one or more of these symptoms, don’t wait to get help. The sooner you seek treatment, the easier and more effective it will be.
