If you develop gum disease, it is important that it is treated before serious problems occur. At Northbridge Dental, our dentist can provide different types of gum treatments to make sure that your gums return to good health. If you are concerned about the health of your gums, visit us at our dental office in Alpharetta GA where you can be seen by one of our two expert dentists, Dr. Stanley Sotnikov or Dr. Elvira Galperin.
When a patient has gum disease, it is important that it is treated because gum disease will never clear up by itself. Gum disease occurs when tartar on the teeth causes the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, food debris and bacteria all gather in the gums, and infection forms. This infection in turn can weaken the jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. Infection from gum disease can even travel through the bloodstream to other parts of your body. One of the best ways to get gums healthy once again is with a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. You can get this important dental treatment at our dental office in Alpharetta GA. During this treatment you will remain perfectly comfortable. The periodontal scaling and root planing treatment is often referred to as a deep cleaning for the gums. During this treatment the roots are also planed so that it is difficult for plaque to stick to the tooth roots. If this treatment is not effective, and advanced treatment is necessary, we can perform laser gum surgery at our office. This surgery will safely and effectively address your gum disease problem, and will help your gums return to good health. There are many benefits to laser surgery including more a more comfortable and shorter procedure, and an easier and shorter recovery time.
