Denver Periodontal Therapy

Contact Midtown Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

Healthy teeth go hand in hand with healthy gums. Unfortunately, many people don’t take the time to maintain their gums’ health, and as a result can suffer from terrible problems like gingivitis, gum infections, and tooth loss. However, you can address your gum’s health before it spirals out of control using periodontal therapy.

At Midtown Dental, we offer many types of periodontal (gum) disease therapy that can help keep your gums healthy. In particular, our dentists focus on providing surgical treatments, maintenance cleanings, and countless other unique approaches that can treat any gum problems, no matter how serious they might seem.

Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease occurs when bacteria build up inside the mouth, infecting the gum tissue surrounding teeth. As this nasty bacteria accumulates, it causes tartar and plaque buildup, making the gums sag and detach from the teeth. You can usually tell whether you have gum disease if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Tender, swollen gums
  • Pain and sensitivity
  • Red gum tissue
  • Loose teeth
  • Bleeding gums upon flossing or brushing

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing (SRP) is a type of periodontal therapy that tackles gum disease at the root. Our dentists use manual and ultrasonic tools to flush out tartar, plaque, and biofilm from your teeth, leaving them clean and debris-free. In addition, they use root planing to clean the outside of your tooth roots, preventing any future infections.

Dental Bone Grafting

Many people don’t realize that gum disease can cause bone loss, which affects the mouth’s overall structure and health. Thankfully, dentists can use bone grafting surgery to positively aid new bone growth by using new bone grafts to create a foundation that can help fix your face’s bone structure.
