Gum Disease Treatment In Smyrna and Roswell, GA

Gum Disease and Periodontal Treatment

When your body senses threats like infections, lacerations, or foreign bacteria, it is designed to rush support to heal and protect the area being threatened. In healthy individuals, the inflammatory response kills off bacteria and helps to speed healing.

When your body detects plaque, tartar and bacteria in your mouth, instead of actively attacking the bacteria, it starts to protect itself by backing away.

If the early stages of gum disease are left untreated, gums will recede away from the teeth, often resulting in tooth loss. This domino effect can trigger a variety of other dental and oral health problems which are hard to live with and expensive to treat.

Gum Disease Treatments

Gum disease increases your risk of systemic health problems, making it more difficult for your immune system to do its job. Ask Dr. Reich, Dr. Cooney, Dr. Reich-Wingad or Dr. Hughes how non-surgical periodontal therapy can help with problems like heart disease, pneumonia, premature labor, and more.

Gingivitis Treatment

Gingivitis is often painless at first, making it difficult to diagnose without regular dental checkups. Inflammation of the gums can be a potentially serious condition, which is why it’s vital to get regular dental exams from Reich Dental Center.

If you have been diagnosed with or are concerned you might have gingivitis, our dentists offer a range of treatments to reverse or stop gum disease’s progression. If you are in the early stages of gingivitis, most treatment options are non-surgical procedures.

Scaling and Root Planing / Deep Cleaning

If you visit Reich Dental Center every six months for your routine cleaning, you know it involves scaling your teeth and gumline to remove plaque and tartar, and polishing to remove stains and smooth the tooth’s surface. However, if you have symptoms of gum disease, you might need a different type of cleaning called scaling and root planing.

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure our dentists perform to treat patients with active or developing gum disease. Not all patients need this level of cleaning, but it is key for patients concerned with gingivitis.
