Gum Disease Treatment
Prevent Periodontal Disease In Fargo
We want the best for our patients, so we take a unique approach to gum disease treatment. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects countless patients, and we want them to find rapid relief. Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the tissues that surround your teeth, and can lead to tooth loss and bone deterioration. Some of the signs and symptoms of gum disease include:
- Gums that are unusually red
- Gums that are tender or swollen
- Gums that bleed easily
- Gums that have receded from the teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Change in bite
Dr. Hetland and his Fargo team provide non-invasive gum disease treatment so that you can enjoy healthy teeth and gums again without surgery.
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
The optimal way to treat periodontal disease is the way that is the least invasive and most cost-effective. In many cases, non-surgical gum disease treatment is the best way to accomplish this. We provide scaling and root planing treatments, which consist of a careful deep cleaning of the root surfaces. We remove the plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins that are impossible for you to remove at home. In some cases, we also use a pain-free dental laser. Studies have shown that using lasers is a comfortable and effective route to treating periodontal disease.
No More Hygiene Program
Dr. Hetland and his hygienists are highly trained when it comes to gum disease treatment. They are aware of all of the latest scientific discoveries associated with periodontal disease, including the No More Hygiene program. This program allows Dr. Hetland and the hygienists at Designer Smiles in Fargo to find out what bacteria is causing the infection and use targeted antibiotics that will be most effective for you. They can diagnose gum disease in its earliest stages and can educate their patients about every facet of the disease. Our hygienists follow a specific protocol to treat gum disease so that they see more consistent end results, faster healing, and increased patient involvement and understanding.
We have the technology and knowledge to administer the most effective and least invasive gum disease treatment to our patients. Give us a call in Fargo today to set up your appointment if you are in the area, including West Fargo and Moorhead!
