Protect Your Teeth & Restore Your Smile with Gum Treatment

Gum disease can derail your oral health and, if left untreated, eventually cause you to lose teeth. Detecting and treating gum disease early can help you avoid these kinds of problems. If we spot signs of gum disease during your regular checkup, we’ll recommend treating your gums so they can get back on the road to health. You can also save money on your periodontal care when you join our Oasis Dental Wellness Plan.

To get your mouth back in shape, we may use one or both of these gum treatments:

  • Scaling and Root Planing – With special instruments, we perform a deep cleaning to scale (remove) plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gumline. Then they will plane (smooth) your teeth roots to make it more difficult for bacteria to grow back there.
  • Laser Treatment – Our gentle, low-power dental laser will remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back all at the same time. No scalpels will be required, and this procedure is completely pain-free.

In addition, if you’ve lost a significant amount of gum tissue, you may need a gum graft to restore your gumline. For this treatment, we’ll take gum tissue, usually from the roof of your mouth, and place it in the areas where your gums have receded, promoting new tissue growth and eventually making your gums look healthy and attractive again.

We can also perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a quick way to repair your gums without any cutting or stitches. It just requires a tiny hole in your gums through which your dentist will manipulate healthy gum tissue to cover more of your teeth.

Keep your natural teeth and reach a better state of health with gum disease treatment in Vancouver. Call Oasis Dental now at 360-226-8264 to schedule an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is targeted treatment designed to eliminate gum disease from your mouth. At Oasis Dental, we offer two types of gum disease treatment. The first type is deep cleaning using scaling and root planing to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around your gumline. The second type is laser treatment that painlessly removes damaged gum tissue and seals your gums without any cutting or stitches.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

You should not feel any discomfort during your gum disease treatment. Our team will thoroughly numb your gums before we get started so that you don’t feel anything. Plus, we offer a choice of sedation options if you’re nervous about your gum disease treatment. Pick from inhaled sedation with laughing gas, oral sedation using a pill, or IV sedation for our deepest level of sedation.

What are symptoms of gum disease?

In its early stages, there are often no noticeable symptoms of gum disease. However, there are several signs of gum disease you should be on the lookout for. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, or if they’re red and puffy and sore to the touch, you may be experiencing gum disease. If any of these signs are present, we recommend you contact our office as soon as possible for an appointment.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.
