Drew Family Dentistry

Periodontal (Gum) Treatment

Protect Your Health

With all of the amazing, advanced procedures we can provide in dentistry, it is important to realize everything starts with the foundation or periodontal tissues around the teeth.  In addition to supporting the teeth, research has demonstrated a significant correlation between the health of the periodontal tissues and overall systemic health.  Our highly trained staff at Drew Family Dentistry is skilled in recognizing and treating the periodontal disease to minimize its effects on oral and general health.  Our hygienists offer two types of periodontal treatment customized to each patient’s individual needs.

  • Prophylaxis (Dental Cleaning) – We offer gentle, yet effective dental cleanings to our patients. This is one of the most important types of dental appointments because it can prevent several oral diseases including gingivitis, periodontal disease, and dental caries (cavities).
  • Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning) – This service is for patients who already have periodontal disease (bone loss around the teeth). Our hygienists are highly trained in utilizing instruments such as ultrasonics and lasers during treatment to maximize your outcome and minimize discomfort.

Scaling and Root Planing

When you’re showing signs of early gum disease, scaling and root planing is needed to clean below the gum line and get rid of harmful bacteria.

Our dental hygienists are highly trained to perform this deep cleaning, utilizing the best dental instruments.

Gingival Grafting

Do you have receding gums? A gum graft is a simple surgery where a periodontist places healthy gum tissue on the receding gums to help restore your gum health.

Dr. Drew works closely with specialists in the area to ensure your treatment is cohesive and your gums are healthy. Learn more about a gum graft by watching our video.

Gingivectomy

Do you have a gummy smile? Dr. Drew may recommend a gingivectomy, which allows him to gently reshape any extra gum tissue to create a better balance between your gums and teeth.
