At Hastings Family Dental, we prioritize your gum health as a key component of your overall oral wellness. Gum disease, if left untreated, can lead to more serious health issues, including tooth loss. That is why our dentists and team focus on non-surgical gum disease treatments, aimed at effectively managing and reversing the effects of gum disease in its early stages.

Our approach to non-surgical gum disease treatment includes:

  • Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing): This procedure involves carefully removing plaque and tartar buildup both above and below the gumline. Root planing smooths the root surfaces, discouraging further buildup of plaque and tartar.
  • Antimicrobial Treatments: We may apply or prescribe antimicrobial agents to reduce bacterial infection in the gum pockets.
  • Laser Therapy: For some cases, laser therapy is used to gently remove diseased tissue and promote healing without the need for incisions or sutures.
  • Ongoing Maintenance: After initial treatment, we will set up a maintenance schedule to monitor your gums and prevent the recurrence of disease.

Benefits of choosing non-surgical gum disease treatment at our practice include:

  • Effective management and potential reversal of early-stage gum disease
  • Reduced risk of tooth loss and other complications associated with advanced gum disease
  • Less discomfort and downtime compared to surgical options
  • Improvement in overall oral health and fresh breath
