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. Studies show that 80% of Americans have suffered from some form of gum disease in their lifetime. This common disease is caused by an infection that affects the tissues that surround your teeth. It 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
Our dentist and talented dental team provide non-invasive gum disease treatment so that you can enjoy healthy teeth and gums again.
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
With gum disease treatment, you don’t always need to have surgery. At Designer Smiles, we provide scaling and root planing treatments which consist of a careful deep cleaning of the root surfaces. We will remove the plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins that are difficult for you to remove at home and lead to swollen gums. In some cases, we also use a relatively pain-free dental laser. Studies have shown that using lasers can be a comfortable and effective route to treating periodontal disease.
No More Hygiene Program
The No More Hygiene program is a program that is designed to establish long-term optimal dental health. It allows our dental team to determine which bacteria are causing your infection. Once we have your diagnosis, we can administer antibiotics that will target and remove the bacteria. This program also helps us diagnose gum disease in its earliest stages. As we work to remove the disease, we will educate you on gum disease prevention. Our hygienists follow a specific protocol to treat gum disease. This helps ensure more consistent end results, faster healing, and increased patient involvement and understanding.
