Dr. Roeder on Treating Gum Disease

Diagnosing & Treating Your Gum Disease

During your dental exam, we’ll check to see if there are any gaps between your teeth and your gums. These are called periodontal pockets. Bacteria can fester in these pockets. If you have pockets, we’ll measure them to see how severe your gum disease is and discuss a treatment plan.

A great gum disease preventive measure is daily flossing. If that fails, we’ll move on to nonsurgical gum disease treatment: scaling and root planing. This treatment involves smoothing out the roots of your teeth so bacteria has nothing to cling to, as well as cleaning out all the bacteria in your dental pockets to encourage your gums and your teeth to close up the space between them.

If your gum disease is severe or the roots of your teeth are exposed, Dr. Roeder can treat you for gum recession. Our dental office was hand-selected to offer the new pain-free method of gum recession treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
