Gum health is something we check for every patient that comes in. And the way we're set up for it is, of course we've got hygienists here that do the treatment for the patients. We have lasers that we can incorporate into that treatment. And our number one goal is to reduce the debris that might be between the teeth and the gum, to reduce the discomfort that's there to improve the health of those tissues, because once that health is there, then we can start slowing down the maintenance schedule and having the patient take care of it at home. Whereas, we just do some of the smaller things here in the office.
- Bring health back to your mouth
- Stop bleeding gums when brushing and flossing
- Eliminate your discomfort
- Enjoy a more attractive smile
- Avoid the need for more invasive treatment
Call us today at 720-613-5723 if your gums are suffering – we can help! You’ll find our friendly office located on Trail Boss Drive, not far from the Outlets at Castle Rock.
Give Your Gums The Best Treatment Possible
Gum disease can take hold without your being aware of it. Plaque left on your teeth eventually becomes tartar that can form pockets of bacteria just under your gumline. Before you know it, your gums are red and puffy, and they may bleed when you brush.
To stop your gum disease, we’ll rely on a general dentistry treatment known as “deep cleaning” that uses scaling and root planing. However, we’ll go a step further, as we’ll also incorporate our EPIC™ dental laser into your treatment.
Traditional scaling and root planing works like this:
- We’ll use special instruments to remove (scale) plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and underneath your gumline.
- We’ll smooth (plane) your teeth roots to make it more difficult for bacteria to collect there.
Our special laser will then be used to kill virtually all the bacteria under your gumline, sterilizing the area and promoting healing of the gum tissue. Plus, it does all this without any cutting or stitches.
In no time at all, your gums will begin to look better and feel better. Depending on how prone you are to gum disease, we may need to repeat these steps every few months. If you’ve lost gum tissue, we can also provide gum recession treatment to help your gums heal.
