Unfortunately, gum disease is not curable. However, we can detect early warning signs of gum disease at your regular dental checkups. At this stage, prevention might be as simple as changing your brushing technique, improving your flossing routine, or changing the products you use for oral care at home.
We offer a range of gum disease treatments in Chattanooga, TN, including:
Scaling – to remove hardened plaque from below the gum line
Root Planing – to reduce rough areas on teeth roots
Antibiotic Therapy – to battle infection
Surgery – advanced cases may require the care of a periodontist, in which case we will refer you to a trusted colleague
Also, expect to attend more frequent hygiene visits so that we can monitor your condition and make sure that recovery is on track. Contact Chattanooga Dental Arts today to schedule your first appointment with our doctors.
