Gum Disease Therapy in Lansing
Gum disease is a massive and widespread problem in the United States. The majority of American adults have some degree of gum disease. The problem can be insidious, with few or no obvious symptoms. However, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and even systemic problems, like cardiovascular or diabetes complications.
At Dionise Dental, our team checks you thoroughly for gum disease at every cleaning. In the event that you do have gum disease, we have advice and treatments to get your mouth back to good health. These treatments may include antibiotic therapy and scaling and root planing.
Scaling and Root Planing
A scaling and root planing is sometimes called a deep cleaning. We clean inside the gingival pockets under your gum to remove plaque and tartar where harmful bacteria thrive. This deep cleaning helps to reduce gum inflammation, clear up symptoms, and ultimately helps to resolve periodontal disease.
Gum swelling, bleeding, and tenderness are common symptoms of gum disease.
