Cavities are bad news. But unhealthy gums actually pose a greater risk to your teeth than dental decay. If Dr. John Argeros or our other Peabody, MA dentists detect disease during a dental exam, they can provide gum disease treatment to:
- Keep your gums looking and feeling good
- Help protect you from tooth loss
- Eliminate unpleasant symptoms such as bleeding gums and chronic bad breath
- Help avoid related health problems like stroke and diabetes by ridding your mouth of infection
If you’re worried about your gum health, call 978-705-6051 for comfortable treatment, including laser gum therapy and the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
Reversing Gum Disease Is Quick and Comfortable With a Laser
Gum disease (periodontal disease) is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults. It’s also a common problem – one that affects four out of five adults at some point in their lives. In its earliest stages, our dentists can eliminate gum disease with a thorough dental cleaning. In some cases, you may need a more specialized treatment called scaling and root planing. During this treatment, we remove bacteria and infected tissue from around the gumline and smooth your tooth roots to make them less hospitable to bacteria.
We use a laser to more effectively target infected tissue and also to:
- Keep the treatment less invasive and more comfortable for you
- Speed post-treatment recovery
- Lower your chances of infection
If necessary, you can also receive gum infection treatment antibiotics like Arestin®.
Repair Your Receding Gums With Minimally Invasive Treatment
Gum disease can cause your gums to recede from your teeth. Our dentists can heal receding gums and restore their healthy appearance with a minimally invasive treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Unlike a gum graft, this technique involves no stitching, sutures, or tissue removal from your mouth. Instead, our dentists make tiny pinpricks at your gumline and use special instruments to gently move the tissue back into place. Your gums will look and feel great again!
