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?

Irritated Gums

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.

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.

Deep Cosmetic Cleaning

Piezo Scalers

Cleaning At A Whole New Level

Ultrasonic scalers have a distinct advantage over traditional hand scaling treatments in providing teeth with an advanced level of cleaning that is highly efficient and convenient. Our staple Piezo-electric scalers use high speed ultrasonic mechanical vibrations to gently but very accurately target and remove bacteria, plaque, and other harmful deposits found around and in between the teeth. Whether you are receiving a root planing and scaling treatment or hope for a deep clean at your six month appointment, our Piezo-electric scaler can transform your smile and level of dental health.
