When you’re thinking about oral health, your teeth most likely draw most of your attention. But the gum tissue supporting your smile is just as important. Gum disease is one of the most common health problems in the world, and it can very easily lead to tooth loss if untreated.

Our hygienist is fully trained in providing:
Routine cleaning of the teeth
With the small mirror to guide them, the dental hygienist uses a scaler to get rid of plaque and tartar around your gum line, as well as in between your teeth. You’ll hear scraping, but this is normal. The more tartar there is in your mouth, the more time they’ll need to scrape a particular spot.
Scaling and Root planing
Scaling and root planing cleanings, also known as deep cleanings, are used to both the teeth and gum pockets in order to treat gingivitis and periodontitis. Deep cleanings for gingivitis are usually completed in a single dental appointment. Deep cleanings for periodontitis, on the other hand, may require multiple appointments and local anesthetics depending on the severity. Scaling is the process that removes plaque and tartar from the tooth’s surface and in the gum pockets below the gum line that form as a result of gum disease. Not only does this remove bacteria, but it also helps to reduce gum inflammation.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
Sometimes infected gum tissue might need to be removed. Luckily, modern dental technology has made this process much simpler. Laser periodontal therapy is much more comfortable than a treatment that involves traditional metal tools. Furthermore, a dental laser will instantly sterilize and cauterize the treatment area as we go along. This reduces the risk of a new infection forming and helps promote healthy tissue regeneration during the recovery process (meaning your mouth will heal much faster).
