Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a serious condition that can significantly impact your overall health. When left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and has been linked to a variety of other health issues, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. At KA Dental Group, our team of dental professionals is committed to helping patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health. We offer a range of therapies to combat periodontal disease, such as deep cleaning, laser gum contouring, surgical and non-surgical gum therapy, Arestin therapy, and Black Triangle removal. Each treatment is tailored to suit individual needs and provide effective, long-lasting results.
Plaque Free Teeth
Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical procedure that removes plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line. This treatment is typically the first line of defense against gum disease and helps to reduce inflammation, allowing the gums to reattach to the teeth. By eliminating harmful bacteria, deep cleaning can prevent further damage to your teeth and gums, protecting your oral health.
Arestin therapy is a localized antibiotic treatment that targets the bacteria causing periodontal disease. It is often used in conjunction with deep cleaning to maximize its effectiveness. Arestin is a microsphere-based formulation applied directly to the infected gum pockets, slowly releasing the antibiotic over time. This targeted approach helps to eliminate harmful bacteria and promote healing in the affected areas, significantly improving gum health.
Laser gum contouring is a minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced laser technology to reshape and remove excess gum tissue. This treatment is particularly beneficial for those suffering from gum overgrowth, which can harbor harmful bacteria and contribute to periodontal disease. Laser gum contouring offers a faster healing time and reduced discomfort compared to traditional gum surgery, providing patients with a safe and effective solution for improving their gum health.
At KA Dental Group, we offer both surgical and non-surgical gum therapy options to treat various stages of periodontal disease. Non-surgical therapies, such as deep cleaning and Arestin therapy, are often used in the early stages of gum disease to control bacterial growth and inflammation. In more advanced cases, surgical gum therapy may be necessary to remove damaged tissue, reduce pockets, and promote healing. Our dental professionals will work closely with you to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific needs.
Black triangles, or open gingival embrasures, are small gaps that form between the teeth and the gum line due to gum recession and bone loss. These spaces can trap food particles and bacteria, increasing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. At KA Dental Group, we offer Black Triangle removal as a cosmetic and restorative solution to this common issue. Our skilled dental professionals use a combination of advanced techniques and materials to fill these gaps, improving the appearance of your smile and protecting your oral health. Don’t let periodontal disease compromise your overall health. At KA Dental Group, we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care and the most effective treatments to restore your oral health.
