Restore Your Gums With Scaling & Root Planing

We prefer to treat gum infections without surgery at our practice. The most common treatment we offer is scaling and root planing. This procedure has been proven to effectively treat periodontitis. This is a more advanced form of gum disease that affects nearly half of American adults.

This two-part process is a deeper cleaning than what you get as part of your routine general dental care. Here’s what happens during this treatment:

  • Scaling is the first part. One of our dental professionals will remove the bacteria-filled plaque and tartar buildup from the roots of your teeth.
  • Then during root planing, we will smooth out the surface of your roots. This makes it easier for your gums to reattach to your teeth as you heal and helps prevent additional bacteria from accumulating between teeth and gums.

Your peace of mind and your comfort are high priorities during your treatment. We use local anesthesia and can offer multiple sedation options to assure you will remain pain-free while we remove the cause of your infection.

Avoid Tooth Loss & Smile Confidently by Acting Today

Untreated gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in the United States. Gum disease also has been linked to systemic health problems. People with periodontal infections are more likely to have heart attacks as well as diabetes complications.

Seek care as soon as possible if you notice the symptoms of a gum infection:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen gums
  • Lingering bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Sore or tender gums

There’s no reason to take a chance with your smile or your oral health. Call LakeCrest Dental at 918-205-4492 to schedule an appointment for gum disease treatment in Broken Arrow. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What are gum disease symptoms?

In the early stages of gum disease, it’s common to experience gum tenderness and bleeding, especially when brushing teeth. As the disease progresses, you may also notice chronic bad breath and teeth that look longer than before due to gum recession. It’s important to seek treatment as soon as you notice symptoms to keep the disease from worsening.

What is gum disease treatment?

We treat gum disease with a two-part deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. It involves removing bacteria from the “pockets” that have formed between your teeth and gums (scaling) and then smoothing your tooth roots to help facilitate healing (root planing). The treatment returns your gums to health and prevents the bone and tooth loss that occurs in the disease’s advanced stages.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Our team will numb your mouth with local anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout your gum disease treatment. Plus, we use a gentle touch. If you are still concerned about discomfort or feeling nervous, you can also choose to receive one of our forms of dental sedation: inhaled or oral.
