Promoting Healthier Gums

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common oral health issue caused by the accumulation of plaque, tartar and bacteria on the teeth and below the gumline. It can lead to receding gums, bleeding gums and bad breath in its early stages.

If left untreated for too long, gum disease can eventually lead to periodontal pockets (gaps that form between the teeth and gums), tooth loss and even medical conditions in areas other than the mouth.

These conditions can include heart disease, diabetes and respiratory infections. This is because bacteria from gum disease can enter the bloodstream and affect other parts of the body, leading to potential problems in organs like the heart and lungs.

Early treatment of gum disease is crucial for maintaining long-term oral and overall health. Treatment involves various dental procedures, such as preventive and non-surgical gum therapy to address dental issues like receding gums or gummy smiles.

Gum Disease Therapy

Gum disease treatment methods are tailored to the severity of the disease. Our dentists will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Cosmetic Gum Therapy

Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile because your gums sit to high or too low on your teeth?

Cosmetic gum therapy could be the solution for you. It can help create a more balanced gumline and enhance the overall aesthetics of your mouth by correcting gum recession or removing excess gum tissue.

These goals can be accomplished with gum grafting or a gingivectomy. Gum grafting is when tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and attached to the areas of gum recession. A gingivectomy is when excess gum tissue is removed and reshaped using a scalpel or laser.
