The health of your gums is just as essential to your overall oral health as your teeth. Our goal at Acre Wood Dental is to provide you with all of the necessary treatments to keep your gums healthy and strong. One of the most common conditions we treat, and the main focus of our treatments for your gums, is gum disease. Gum disease is an infection of the gums that causes inflammation, bleeding, and a disintegration of the gum tissue. If not treated in a timely manner, gum disease can eventually lead to tooth loss and even bone loss. We offer many treatments for gum disease, based on your individual needs and the severity of your case.
Our most recommended treatments for gum disease are scaling and root planing, two powerful deep cleaning methods. Scaling removes infected gum tissue from above and below your gum line, while root planing is the process by which we smooth rough patches on your tooth’s surface where bacteria and infection can become trapped. Also available are surgical treatments and cosmetic repairs for more serious cases.
