Highlands Ranch Smiles : Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment in Colorado
Taking care of your gums can provide more benefits than you can imagine. It helps prevent bad breath, decay, tooth loss, and other oral problems. Brushing and flossing, however, may not always be enough to keep these problems at bay. This is where Highlands Ranch Smiles steps in.
Effective Gum Care
We are able to provide a comprehensive periodontal program to help patients avoid gum problems and maintain healthier bone levels. Our first-rate periodontal program involves performing a thorough dental check to identify conditions that may lead to periodontal problems. In-office cleanings, nonsurgical treatments, and soft-tissue programs are also available to help restore your smile.
Once we identify the severity of your gum disease, we’ll start with a deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing. This procedure will go below your gumline to remove plaque and tartar, as well as smoothing out small spaces in your teeth where bacteria can hide. We will follow-up your deep cleaning with an antibacterial gel called Arestin, which will help to eliminate any remaining bacteria.
In cases of extreme infection, we can also use a dental laser for painless removal of excess bacteria. Our lasers can be finely tuned to be harmless to your gums but to vaporize plaque on contact!
To prevent the recurrence of gum disease, we offer prescription mouthwash and Perio Protect. Perio Protect uses custom-fit mouthguards to deliver a daily dose of preventive medication directly to your gums, and you only need to wear it for minutes a day!
If gum recession is severe after relieving your gum disease, we can refer you to a trusted periodontist for gum surgery.
We do more than just treatments and restoring smiles; Drs. Haynes and McKeever will be more than glad to discuss treatment options and lifestyle choices to maintain overall oral health. Our staff members will gladly answer any questions you may have.
