Periodontal Disease Treatment – Denver, CO

Save Your Smile by Protecting Your Gums

Your gums play an extremely important role in keeping your teeth in place and protecting their roots from damage and decay. However, the gums themselves can become infected, and while the problem seems mild and easily ignored at first, it can eventually lead to gaps in your smile and the loss of natural jawbone structure. If Dr. Luke and Dr. Kingsberg find signs of gum disease during your regular checkup, they’ll schedule therapy to get rid of the harmful bacteria causing the issue and restore your oral health with periodontal disease treatment in Denver, CO.

Scaling & Root Planing

In its earliest stages, gum disease can be stopped and reversed with good oral hygiene. If the condition is moderate to severe, a deeper cleaning is required. The process is split into two main parts. The scaling portion involves removing all plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line as well as in the periodontal pockets. Then we’ll move on to the root planing stage and smooth out the roots of the teeth so that the gums can heal and reattach.
