Expert dental care.
Taking care of your gums is a vital part of achieving and maintaining good oral and general health. Your gums are important as they are the structures that surround and support your teeth. The build-up of plaque and tartar on your teeth can result in gum disease setting in. And gum disease, if left unattended to, can lead to serious health issues as well as tooth loss.
Keeping up with good dental hygiene and routine dental check-ups is key in preventing gum disease. Routine check-ups with us allow us to monitor your oral health and identify any signs of gum disease early on.
Some of the signs that may indicate you have gum disease are red, swollen and tender gums, bleeding gums, receding gums and loose teeth. At Great Alpine Dental, we can help restore your gum health with our dental hygiene services and gum treatment.
Our therapist, Annabelle has extensive experience in treating gum disease. A great starting point for taking control of gum disease is scaling and root planing.
What To Expect When Coming In For Scaling and Root Planing
Think of it as a deep-clean for your teeth and gums, for all the places your toothbrush and dental floss can’t get to! The best part about it is that usually, it’s the only treatment you’ll need to give your dental health the boost it needs.
- Our therapist will gently clean your teeth from the root surfaces and under the gum line. She does this using amazing technologically advanced pieces of dental equipment including ultrasonic instruments.
