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 thorough oral hygiene routine at home, can help you keep a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.

Regular Checkups Help You Maintain Good Oral Health

We encourage all of our 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.

Don’t let gum disease steal your smile! Visit Cedar Dental Group for Renton gum disease treatment. Make an appointment by calling 425-970-8115 today or scheduling online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

How long does gum disease treatment take?

We use a two-part cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing to remove bacteria from above and below your gums. Depending on the extent of disease, we may be able to complete this in one appointment, or two may be required. We may also provide an antibiotic for home use and suggest visiting us more often for routine dental cleanings.

Does gum disease treatment hurt?

Many factors can affect your comfort level, including the severity of the disease and the sensitivity of your gums. We typically administer local anesthesia prior to treatment, so you won’t feel any discomfort during your deep cleaning procedure. However, if you’re nervous or worried about discomfort or have previously experienced problems becoming numb with local anesthesia, you can also receive dental sedation.

What are gum disease symptoms?

The first signs of gum disease often include gums that are tender and appear more red than pink. They may also bleed when you brush your teeth. It’s important to see us ASAP if you notice these symptoms. While gum disease is fairly harmless in its early stage, you’re at risk of losing teeth if it is left untreated. In advanced stages of gum disease, your gums will recede and teeth may feel loose.
