Stop Gum Disease in Its Tracks to Keep Your Smile Attractive

Gum disease starts when bad bacteria inside your mouth collects in the tiny spaces between teeth and gums. Your body’s natural healing properties will break down your gum tissues and jawbone in order to fight it. If the infection progresses and you experience significant gum loss, you risk facing serious effects such as tooth loss. That’s why your routine dental cleanings and exams are so vital. They allow us to catch gum disease early, stop it in its tracks, and ultimately, reverse it.

Our gum disease treatment at Copperfield Dentistry is gentle and effective. We may rely on scaling and root planing and an antibiotic called ARESTIN® to deeply clean under your gumline and smooth the roots of your teeth so your gums can reattach to them.

Dr. Burch also uses a dental laser to carefully remove infected gum tissue, a groundbreaking method that offers several benefits:

  • Comfort – Laser gum therapy is virtually painless as a noninvasive process. However, if you do feel nervous, we offer sedation options to help you relax.
  • Faster Healing – Dental lasers eliminate the need for cutting and suturing, which means a more pleasant treatment experience and faster healing.
  • Less Risk of Infection – Because of their high-energy light beam, dental lasers allow us to sterilize your gums and reduce your risk for future infection.

Once you’ve been treated for gum disease, we may recommend that you visit us more frequently, usually about every three to four months, to make sure your gums stay healthy.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to get rid of plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gumline. At Copperfield Dentistry, we offer several types of gum disease treatment, including scaling and root planing, antibiotics, antibacterial irrigation, and laser treatment. Your dentist will help decide on the right type of treatment based on your needs.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Our team is dedicated to providing you the most comfortable treatment possible. We use a local anesthetic that will numb your gums so you don’t feel any discomfort. If laser treatment is needed, it is a quick and painless method for eliminating infection from your gums. In addition, you have a choice of three kinds of sedation to help you relax during your treatment.

How long does gum disease treatment take?

The length of treatment depends largely on the severity of your disease. Some patients require only a single deep cleaning treatment (scaling and root planing), while we may recommend several procedures for other patients. We typically apply an antibiotic after cleanings to discourage bacteria growth. This helps keep your gums disease-free and lessens the need for further treatment.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
