Periodontal Therapy

If your gums feel sore or are swollen or inflamed, you may be suffering from some level of periodontal disease (gum disease.) Gum disease is very common, affecting almost half of all American adults over 30. Research has shown that chronic diseases of the mouth can contribute to chronic health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and even dementia, so being proactive about treating gum disease promptly is essential to protecting your oral health and general well-being.

We understand the importance of effective treatment for gum disease, but if you are concerned that it might be uncomfortable or even painful, you can feel at ease knowing that Dr. Singh and our professional team use state-of-the-art equipment to treat gum disease effectively and comfortably. Helping you achieve perfect oral health is the reason we are here, and we strive to provide the treatment you need without stress or worry.


What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is an infection that affects gum tissue and bone surrounding your teeth. The food and drink we consume during the day linger on our teeth, forming a sticky film called plaque. Plaque left on your teeth eventually hardens into a substance called tartar. Plaque and tartar are magnets for bacteria, and if you don’t remove the bacteria through proper brushing and regular dental cleanings, a periodontal infection can develop.

How Is Periodontal Disease Treated?

For many years, the only treatment for advanced periodontal disease was gum surgery. But dental technology has come a long way, and Singh Smile Care is pleased to offer treatments for gum disease that are completely non-invasive, requiring no surgery. We use state-of-the-art periodontal lasers that remove harmful bacteria and actually encourage regrowth of healthy gum tissue. Dental lasers are gentle and comfortable and allow you to receive important treatment with no discomfort and little to no recovery time.

What Does Treatment For Gum Disease Involve?

Dr. Singh will perform a thorough assessment and examination of your teeth and gums to determine the extent of the periodontal infection. If he finds that you have advanced periodontal disease, he will recommend the use of dental lasers to remove the infection.

Treatment with dental lasers is very gentle and can be performed efficiently and with no discomfort. Dr. Singh guides the laser around the gums to carefully remove bacteria while leaving healthy gum tissue intact. The treatment is usually done over two appointments to reduce the amount of time you spend in the dental chair. Most patients experience no discomfort at all and can go about their day as usual after treatment.

Dr. Singh may also recommend CloSYS II, a unique system of holistic oral health products that you use at home to help control the growth of bacteria in your mouth. The system includes an oral health rinse, toothpaste, and breath spray. We want you to have all the tools you need to protect your oral health and prevent periodontal disease from coming back.
