Why Addressing Gum Disease is So Important
Gingivitis, also known as the earliest form of gum disease, has little to no symptoms. Because of this, many individuals with the condition don’t seek professional care until their situation has worsened. If left to develop further, the plaque that builds up on teeth will harden, turning into tartar. Regular brushing and flossing alone will not be enough for this calculus to be eliminated.
When the initial signs of gum disease are detected early on, Drs. Han and Chun can provide the best treatment recommendations to address your specific periodontal issue efficiently.
Comprehensive Periodontal Treatments from Drs. Hand and Chun
New and existing patients visiting our Hayward dental office in need of gum disease treatment can rest assured in their care. During your comprehensive consultation, our team conducts a thorough examination to detect if signs of periodontal complications are present.
If it is determined that your current dental state is showing symptoms of even the smallest amount of gum disease, we go to work right away.
At Premier Family Dental, we offer the following in gum disease therapy:
Periodontal Maintenance – During this visit, it has already been diagnosed that periodontal issues are present. This treatment will include a variety of proactive gum disease maintenance such as accurate medical and dental history and pocket depth measurements.
Scaling and Root Planning - Utilizing specialized instruments, calculus is removed from the surfaces of teeth and below the gum line. This minimally-invasive treatment is highly effective and allows the gums to reattach to teeth once the harmful plaque is eradicated. It also significantly reduces periodontal pockets and prevents infection from developing.
Laser Therapy – This form of treatment uses laser light to strategically remove the infected, inflamed gum tissue, and leave the healthy gum tissue safely untouched. No cutting is required, and bleeding is almost non-existent.
This non-surgical gum treatment also uses the laser to seal the blood vessels and nerve endings during the procedure. This is important because it significantly reduces pain after the process and allows patients to return to normal activities immediately afterward.
