Periodontal Therapy (Gum Disease)
Gingivitis. Periodontal disease. Gum disease. No matter what term you use, the symptoms including swollen gums, bleeding gums, and receding gums stand in the way of your dental health. Left untreated, these issues can lead to loosening of teeth and even tooth loss. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, our team at Lawrenceville Smiles can help.
Gum disease is caused by bacteria found in plaque above and below your gum line. These areas can be thoroughly and effectively deep cleaned in a comfortable way to help control and even eliminate gum disease. If needed, we can place a dose of the antibiotic Arestin in the pockets beneath your gum line to help eradicate the problem-causing bacteria altogether. Between our team’s high-quality treatment and dedication to routine dental hygiene, your gum disease doesn’t stand a chance.
Please know that while we go out of our way to provide comprehensive, all-inclusive care in our office, some patients requiring advanced periodontal therapy may need to be referred to a trusted gum specialist for more in-depth treatment.
