Non Surgical Gum Therapy in Aldershot, Ontario

Poor dental health has can impact you in a variety of ways, such as increasing the risks of health disease, diabetes, and gum disease. Gum disease is one of the most common oral health diseases that Canadians suffer from. And the truth is most people won’t know that they have it unless they visit their dentist for a checkup. The reason for this is that gum disease is hard to detect until it has progressed to more serious stages.

Early symptoms of gum disease include tender or swollen gums, or gums that bleed when brushing or flossing. Gum recession is another common symptom which causes your gums to recede and cause your teeth to appear longer. As gum disease progresses, the gum and bone tissues will continue to break down and cause pockets to form. Eventually, your teeth will loosen and fall out.

The best way to prevent gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene. This means that you should be brushing and flossing daily and using a fluoride toothpaste. In addition, maintaining a healthy balanced diet will help to keep your mouth healthy. The good news is that if you do have gum disease, it can be safely treated with non-surgical gum therapy.

Non-surgical gum therapy uses a number of non-surgical techniques to clean your teeth and gums and eradicate the harmful toxins that are inflaming your gum tissues. The Aldershot dental team will perform a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

During the deep cleaning, we will use a variety of techniques, such as scaling to remove the toxins from your gum tissues. Root planing is also employed which cleans and smoothes out the root surfaces. This allows the chronically inflamed gums to heal and for new healthy tissues to grow in their place.

Dental laser will help to eliminate pathogenic bacteria and speed-up gum healing process.

Your gum therapy sessions will likely be spread out over multiple sessions to allow us to monitor your condition and ensure your gums are healing properly. We also offer laser gum therapy to remove problematic gum tissues.
