Restore Gum Health With Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment in Black Diamond

Many of us focus on our teeth because they’re the most prominent part of our smile. Yet gums are just as important, if not more so, to good dental health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. In addition, research has linked it to serious health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. We’ll return your gums to health with non-surgical gum disease treatment.

A Laser Keeps Gum Disease Treatment Quick & Comfortable

As with any procedure in our Black Diamond dentist office, we use the latest technology. For gum disease treatment, that’s a laser. We use a laser to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from teeth, gums, and tooth roots. This deep cleaning treatment, called scaling and root planing, eliminates the bacteria that caused the disease and makes it easier for gums to reattach to teeth.

Our laser dentistry makes the treatment:

  • More Targeted – The laser allows us to focus on diseased tissue without affecting healthy tissue.
  • More Comfortable – With a laser, the process is much quicker and involves less scraping.
  • Less Invasive – No cutting or sutures are needed with a laser. This means you’ll heal more quickly and easily.

Don’t Ignore Gum Disease Symptoms

Gums that bleed, when you’re brushing or at other times, are a gum disease symptom. See us right away if you notice blood when brushing. Other symptoms include:

  • Gums that appear red instead of pink
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Tender or swollen gums
  • Pain when chewing
  • Teeth that feel loose
