Treating Your Gum Disease With The Most Effective Solutions For You

Whether you’re dealing with an early or advanced form of gum disease, Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will help return your gums to the healthiest condition possible. The first step is determining if gum disease is causing your oral issues. You may be dealing with gum disease if you’re experiencing:

  • Red, bleeding, tender, or swollen gums
  • Sensitivity in your teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Consistent bad breath

We will examine your mouth, then recommend any of the following treatments:

Perio Protect®
This at-home treatment includes comfortable, customized trays that contain medication. The trays are worn only 10 to 15 minutes each day to fight the infection. Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto of Gentle Family Dentists will determine how long your treatment should last based on your gums’ condition.

Soft-Tissue Laser Treatment
Though we also offer traditional gum surgery, we prefer to use our soft-tissue laser to rid your gums of infection. Laser gum treatment will:

  • Vaporize gum tissue that has been infected by bacteria
  • Correct your gums with little to no bleeding
  • Ensure a speedier healing process than oral surgery, which requires traditional dental tools

Our patient-friendly laser is also used for gum reshaping and gummy smile treatments.

Scaling and Root Planing
These “deep cleaning” procedures consist of removing tartar or plaque that has built up under your gums and on the roots of your teeth. Your jawbone and gums will benefit from this treatment.

Call 563-316-6055 to schedule a consultation at our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA office. You can also easily book your visit or ask us any questions right now using our online form. Let’s get your gums back in shape and feeling great as soon as possible.
