When it comes to preventing and treating gum disease, Pristine Dental strives for excellence. We value the importance of healthy gums, for the sake of your smile and your overall health. Periodontal disease is an oral health condition that can bring serious consequences. However, by detecting it and treating it early with general dentistry, patients can receive less invasive treatments and avoid more severe problems. The best way to detect gum problems early is to visit your dentist on a regular basis for an exam. We will carefully monitor your gum health every six months so that receding gums, swollen gums or bleeding gums are treated right away.

Dr. Noh is a skilled and gentle dentist who offers a full menu of periodontal treatment options. Depending on the stage and severity of your gum disease, we will recommend a personalized treatment plan to eradicate the gum infection and protect the future of your smile. As with all of our dental services, we perform gum disease treatment using the latest technology and techniques in modern dentistry. 

Treatment for Periodontitis

Your comfort is always important to us. Our Walpole family dental practice offers minimally invasive methods to treat periodontitis successfully and painlessly. Advanced soft tissue lasers offer significant advantages over conventional therapies. They involve a delicate and thorough cleaning of the deep gum pockets that harbor harmful bacteria while also promoting the reattachment of bone and connective tissue. Seeking prompt treatment for periodontitis is critical. Without proper care, your gums can detach from your teeth and cause tooth loss. Advanced gum disease has also been linked to serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Deep Cleaning, Scaling and Root Planing

As a first line of defense against gum disease, we offer scaling and root planing. This is a deep cleaning procedure that can stop the progression of gum disease. Dr. Noh may also suggest a scaling and root planing procedure if you are at high risk for gum disease. During a deep cleaning, we will use a combination of ultrasonic cleaners and traditional hand scalers to ensure your teeth and gums receive a meticulous cleaning. Areas of hardened plaque and calculus beneath the gum line and around the tooth root can be effectively eradicated during this procedure. Your deep cleaning will be concluded by smoothing out the rough surfaces on your teeth to help your gums reattach. Our use of cutting-edge equipment allows scaling and root planing to be a powerful, yet gentle cleaning experience that will leave your mouth feeling refreshed and healthy.
