How Is Periodontal Disease Treated?
In today’s age of dentistry, there are a number of treatments that can be employed to stop the progression of periodontal disease and improve overall gum health. Some of the more traditional means for treating gum disease include deep scaling and root planing, which are designed to remove bacteria, tartar, and plaque located deep within the gums.
In addition to these techniques, Dr. Don Chiappetti and Dr. Jonathan Coombs offer laser gum treatment at Scottsdale Smile Center. This advanced approach enables our dentists to destroy harmful bacteria while encouraging the growth of new, healthy gum tissues. Key benefits of laser dentistry can include:
- Little to no pain or discomfort
- Quicker healing than other methods
- Less gum swelling and bleeding
- Minimal to no recovery period
Based on each patient’s unique needs, Dr. Coombs and Dr. Chiappetti can select and administer the form of treatment that will most effectively halt the progression of periodontal disease. If you or a loved one is experiencing signs of gum disease, we encourage you to contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
