Get Your Gums Under Control
If you have advanced gum disease, you may be in significant discomfort and others may also notice your problems due to receding gums. Your life doesn’t have to remain on that track, though. Dr. Arif-Holmes has two great options for restoring your gum health and helping you smile with confidence again:
- Scaling and Root Planing – This is the tried-and-true method for eliminating gum disease. We’ll first use a special instrument (known as a scaler) to remove tartar and bacteria from around and beneath the gumline. Then we’ll smooth (plane) the roots to allow your gums to heal without bacteria reforming there. This procedure may need to be repeated every few months for best results.
- Laser Therapy – Laser treatment is an exciting new development in the world of gum disease treatment. A special low-power laser is used to remove damaged gum tissue as well as plaque and tartar. At the same time, the laser reseals your gums, with no cutting and stitches involved. Patients love this method because there is minimal discomfort, and their healing time is quick.
No matter what shape your gums are in, we can help. Call Mayfair Family Dentistry today at 414-519-6724 for gum disease treatment in Wauwatosa.
