Our Team Will Get Your Gums Back in Shape

At Cedar Dental Group, we can treat mild and moderate gum disease with a “deep cleaning” process known as scaling and root planing. If you have more advanced gum disease (periodontitis), we can refer you to a trusted local periodontist for treatment.

Each of our hygienists is specially trained on how to perform scaling and root planing gently yet effectively. They will:

  • Use special instruments to remove (scale) built-up plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gumline
  • Smooth (plane) your teeth roots to make it difficult for bacteria to regain a hold there
  • Provide follow-up treatment with a special antibiotic therapy called Arestin®, if needed

These steps will usually restore health to your gums and your mouth. Depending on your situation, we may need to repeat your treatment every few months. Our care, accompanied by a thorough oral hygiene routine at home, can help you keep a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.

Regular Checkups Help You Maintain Good Oral Health

Drs. Courtney and Tran encourage all their patients to visit us twice a year for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Regular visits give us the opportunity to catch and treat small dental problems before they have the chance to cause more damage.

Gum disease is much easier to treat early. Dental experts estimate that nearly 50 percent of Americans ages 30-64 have some form of gum disease. That’s a lot of smiles that need treating! If you have tender, painful, bleeding, or red gums, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
