Reasons to Get Gum Disease Treatment Now
Gum disease can begin before you notice any symptoms. Many people don’t realize how quickly it can progress to periodontitis, a severe infection in the soft tissue that causes bone and tooth loss. In the early stages of gum disease, known as gingivitis, you may notice sore or bleeding gums when brushing or eating. As plaque continues to build up, your gums become inflamed and begin to pull away from your teeth. Without proper treatment from a periodontist or skilled dentist, you may experience alarming changes to the appearance of your smile, such as receding gums, extensive decay, and loose teeth. If tooth loss isn’t bad enough, many studies have also linked periodontitis to debilitating health conditions like cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Essential Gum Disease Treatments
You don’t have to go to a periodontist for laser gum surgery. This minimally invasive treatment can restore your gum health with a shorter recovery time. Dr. Bennett uses a state-of-the-art dental laser to contour “gummy” smiles, treat gum disease, and remove bacteria and infected tissue. You may also have to undergo laser gum surgery for peri-implantitis, a gum infection that causes dental implant failure and leads to significant bone loss. Studies have shown laser gum surgery encourages healthy soft-tissue growth and reattachment for a beautiful smile!
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment and the first line of defense against gum disease. Your dentist removes plaque and bacteria from above and below the gum line, known as scaling. Then, you’ll undergo root planing to smooth the surface of your teeth. This procedure allows for healthy tissue reattachment while protecting from future infection.
Osseous surgery is an aggressive periodontal treatment for advanced gum disease and peri-implantitis in Arvada, CO. A periodontist or dentist experienced in oral surgery performs this procedure to remove diseased gum tissue and bacteria trapped in pockets between teeth. Then, they can repair the damaged bone restoring support to the teeth and strengthening the foundation of your smile!
With expert periodontal maintenance, you can maintain a beautiful smile. At Arvada Dental Center, we offer laser treatments in-house, so you don’t have to go to another office to see a periodontist. Simply visit our office every 3-4 months to receive your laser-assisted deep cleanings, which replace your regular hygiene appointments. Whether you have full mouth dental implants or your natural teeth, periodontal maintenance improves your oral health!
