Gum Disease Treatment

If you're experiencing gum pain or bleeding, seeking prompt dental care is crucial to address potential gum disease and prevent further complications. Don't delay; our expert team at Smile Studio Dental can provide personalized treatment to restore your gum health.

Gum Disease Treatment in Denver, CO

Our team is dedicated to promptly addressing gum infections before they escalate into more serious issues. If we detect a problem with your gums, we will take immediate action to treat it.

Typically, we use scaling and root planing, a two-step deep cleaning process. During the first step, we remove tartar buildup on your tooth roots below the gumline. In the second step, we smooth the surface of the tooth roots to make it easier for the tooth to reattach to the gums. We also use a specialized laser to remove any infected gum tissue.

If you feel anxious about the treatment, we can provide dental sedation to ensure your procedure is pain-free. Rather than waiting for the signs of early-stage gum disease to manifest, commonly known as gingivitis, we recommend that you be proactive and visit us at Smile Studio Dental for a routine exam and gum disease treatment.
