Gums & Bone Treatment
A Healthy Mouth for a Stronger Body
The Center for Disease Control estimates that over half of Americans aged 30 or older have periodontitis, or the advanced form of gum disease. When left untreated gum disease can lead to painful decay or tooth loss. This destructive disease is known to develop more quickly for those who smoke or are taking certain medications. By attending six month cleanings and regularly speaking with our team our staff can spot gum disease before it begins and support a healthy smile for years.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Patients with gum disease or gingivitis may experience redness, swelling and pain in their gums and around their teeth. Gum disease may begin painlessly but advances quickly if left untreated. In later stages Periodontitis results in the gums pulling away from the tooth or teeth, which can lead to tooth decay or the loss of one or more teeth. When you come in for a six month cleaning at Riar Dental Arts our team can provide preventive tips and deep cleanings to treat or prevent gum disease and promote strong dental health.

Your Current Dental Health
Root Planing and Scaling
A process known as root planing and root scaling may be used as a deep cleaning method to gently and precisely locate and remove centers for tartar or bacteria buildup using a soft laser. Oral antibiotics may also be administered before or after a deep cleaning. In any case where your health is concerned, it’s important to find effective treatment and care as soon as possible. Dr. Riar and his staff are ready to help you find the care you need, so you can get back to enjoying a healthier, happier life.
