Our gentle dentist and dental team at White Mountain Dental strive to help you keep your smile in the best of health. As part of this effort, we provide non-surgical gum treatment in Rock Springs, Wyoming. You may need gum treatment if you suffer from periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease. Periodontal disease is an infection in the gum tissue caused by bacteria in plaque and tartar. As the plaque and tartar build up on the teeth, bacteria irritate, infect, and inflame the gums. If gum disease goes untreated, it can lead to bone loss, tooth loss, and a receding gum line. Furthermore, periodontal disease has been linked to diabetes, respiratory conditions, pregnancy complications, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other serious health conditions. Dr. Tyler Carlson works to help you avoid these complications by providing effective gum treatment.
Depending on the severity of the condition, your gum treatment may include deep cleanings called scaling and root planing. These treatments focus on removing bacteria, tartar, and plaque from the teeth. We may recommend other types of treatment based on your individual dental needs. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about non-surgical gum treatment. We are dedicated to improving your oral health!
