Gum Disease Treatments In Bradford, Keswick, & Orangeville
We help patients with gingivitis and periodontitis get healthier gums.
Gum disease is often hard to detect since symptoms may not be very noticeable at first. This makes it difficult for people to evaluate the health of their gums on their own, and often, the symptoms of gingivitis go unnoticed until they advance into signs of periodontal disease.

About Non-Surgical Gum Therapy
It is commonly believed that brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once per day is enough to prevent the onset of periodontitis. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. The reality of gum disease makes it all the more important to maintain a regular schedule of dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.
Depending upon the extent of progression of your gum disease, there may be several different approaches that your dental health care providers may choose. Steps taken can range from a more frequent dental cleaning schedule to gum surgery performed by a periodontal specialist. Most often, courses of treatment fall somewhere in between.
There are many effective, non-surgical dental tools available today to treat gum disease, including topical medications, curettage, and root planing (also known as dental scaling). Topical medications are self-explanatory and can be effective at times, especially for milder cases of gingivitis. Curettage involves the removal of diseased or infected tissue with a dental laser to allow the tooth and bone to heal properly. Root planing involves the smoothening of the roots’ surface to remove any bacterial buildup, plaque, and tartar. The clean area will allow the surrounding gum tissue to heal properly.
