Gum Disease Treatment

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

If your gums are swollen, tender, red, or bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Commonly referred to as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition that begins by affecting your gums but can have serious effects on your entire smile. Caused by bacteria in plaque, periodontal disease begins as inflammation and infection in the gum tissue. When left untreated, gum disease can result in loss of the teeth and bone, as well as a receding gum line. Periodontal disease has been linked to many chronic diseases like heart disease, strokes, cancer, worsening diabetes and many other.

Our dentist at Sunlight Dentistry provides periodontal treatment in Glenwood Springs, Colorado to improve your oral health and prevent these serious conditions.

Gum Disease treatment in Glenwood Springs, may include several types of treatment, including deep cleaning methods called scaling and root planing. The aim of scaling and root planing is to remove bacteria, tartar, and plaque from above and below the gum line. This helps to halt the progress of the disease so your smile can begin to heal.

Dr. Corey Johnson will help you determine whether scaling and root planing or another type of periodontal treatment is right for your smile.
