Gum Disease Treatment

It is important that your teeth are in their best shape. At Mission Peak Dental Care, we want you to love your smile. Gum disease is a serious condition and should be treated as soon as possible.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that occurs due to a buildup of bacteria and plaque. Plaque is a white, sticky substance that is accumulated from bacteria on your teeth and along the gum line. If left untreated, it can cause the early stages of gum disease.

Common Symptoms

You may have gum disease if you are experiencing:

  • Swollen gums
  • Tender gums
  • Red patches
  • Sore throat

How Does Treatment Work?

With a scaling instrument, your hygienist will remove plaque from your teeth and around the gum line. A gritty toothpaste is used to clean your teeth with a high-powered toothbrush. There are also laser-assisted periodontal therapy methods that uses laser energy to remove diseased tissue. Please consult with your doctor to determine which treatment is best for you.
