Remove Problematic Bacteria With Scaling & Root Planing

Your dentist looks for signs of gum disease during every dental exam. Early detection means it’s easier and less costly to treat. That’s why it’s so important to visit us regularly for your checkups!

Gum disease is caused by bacteria in your mouth that get in between your teeth and gums. If it’s not removed, “pockets” form where even more bacteria collects. We remove the bacteria with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. The treatment prevents bacteria from getting underneath the gumline, so your gums have a chance to heal.

We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia before the procedure. If you’re nervous or worried about discomfort, you can also get one of our forms of safe dental sedation.

Recognize the Warning Signs of Gum Disease

Your gums are often, but not always, tender and painful when you have gum disease. You should see us ASAP if your gums hurt or if you have other symptoms:

  • Gums that bleed when you brush or floss, or at other times
  • Gums that look red instead of pink
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Teeth that feel loose

Keep your teeth with gum disease treatment in Claremore. Call 918-921-9583 for an appointment or make an appointment online. You’ll find LakeCrest Dental across the street from American Legion Park.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for best results.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

You should not feel any discomfort during your gum disease treatment. Our team will thoroughly numb your gums before we get started so that you don’t feel anything. Plus, we offer a choice of sedation options if you’re nervous about your gum disease treatment. Choose inhaled sedation with laughing gas or oral sedation using a pill.
