Gum Disease Treatment

Non-Surgical Gum (Periodontal) Therapy in Belleville

Periodontal Disease is a form of gum disease that, if left untreated, causes the loosening and eventual loss of teeth.  Periodontal Disease is the result of a gum infection in which bacteria become trapped underneath your gums.  These bacteria damage and destroy the bone which holds in your teeth.

Signs You May Have Periodontal Disease:

  • It hurts when you floss
  • It hurts when you brush
  • Your gums bleed when you brush or floss
  • You notice your gums are very red
  • You notice your gums are puffy and sensitive.

Non-Surgical Gum Therapy is the first-line of defense to treat Periodontal Disease.  This is a painless procedure in which the doctor will remove the calcified bacteria deposits which are growing beneath your gums.  Once these calcified deposits are removed, your gums can begin to heal.
