High Tech Gum Treatment

Early detection and treatment of gum disease is important to the final outcome and is made easier by the use of new technology we use in our office. A gentle measuring device is used to measure gum pocket depths as well as recording any additional signs of inflammation. I If early signs of gum disease are detected, we usually begin treatment with a non-surgical approach in addition to antibacterial rinses and/or nutritional supplements. We are also highly skilled in correlating gum disease and bone density loss with women’s hormonal changes, especially during menopause. Sometimes referral to a physician is needed to accurately determine treatment needs.
