Gum disease is an infection within your gum tissue that breaks down your gums. As the disease destroys more and more of your gum tissue, you run the risk of loose and shifting teeth, bone loss, and even tooth loss.

- Bleeding Gums
- Red, Inflamed Gums
- Sore Gums
As your disease progresses, the symptoms become harder to miss.
- Deep Pockets in Your Gums
- Gum Recession
- Loose Teeth
- Tooth Loss

Scaling and Root Planing – During this deep cleaning, we’ll remove the bacteria causing your gum problem from around and under your gumline. We’ll also smooth all the rough spots on your tooth roots to remove any additional bacteria and prepare the area to accept new gum growth.
Antibiotics – As gum disease is a bacterial infection of your gum tissue, targeted antibiotics are another effective way we can help you combat this disease.
