Gum Therapy Treatment near Guilford, CT

Comfortable Treatment For A Healthy Smile

Periodontal disease (gum disease), is a type of infection that affects the tissue surrounding your teeth. When periodontal disease isn’t treated promptly, it can lead to the loss of teeth and other problems with your jaw and facial appearance. When you see us at our Westbrook dental office for regular checkups and teeth cleanings twice a year, we will examine your gums to determine if you have gum disease or are at risk of developing gum disease. We offer gum therapy treatment near Guilford, CT to combat periodontal disease.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

You should call Westbrook Dental to schedule an appointment if you notice any of the following signs of periodontal disease:

  • Loose teeth
  • Gums bleeding when brushing
  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Receding (shrinking) gums around your teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • New spaces appearing between your teeth

How Is Periodontal Disease Treated?

During the early stages of periodontal disease, we may be able to reverse the condition by performing a general dental cleaning and recommending some minor lifestyle changes, such as increasing frequency and altering the technique of your brushing and flossing regimen. If your periodontal disease has advanced into a later stage, we may recommend Gum Therapy.

Gum Therapy, also referred to as Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), is a non-surgical procedure that treats the gum tissue around your teeth when they become inflamed or infected. Specialized dental instruments are used to remove dental plaque and calculus from beneath the gums during the scaling process. Planing is a procedure that smooths the tooth’s root after the scaling process. Root planing helps the gums heal and reattach themselves to a cleaner and smoother root surface. Our Westbrook Dental dentists are highly experienced at providing painless gum therapy to our patients who suffer from periodontal disease.
