Restore Your Gum Health With Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment in Jeffersonville, IN

Everyone knows that cavities are bad news, but they aren’t the leading cause of tooth loss. That distinction goes to gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Because gum infections can cause serious dental damage, we offer nonsurgical gum disease treatment in Jeffersonville, IN.

During every examination, we check for signs of disease. When we find signs of an infection, we are ready to remove the bacteria, plaque, and tartar that causes gum disease. Using a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing, we can:

  • Eliminate harmful bacteria above and below your gumline
  • Improve your oral health
  • Keep the bacteria from spreading to other parts of your body
  • End bleeding gums and other unpleasant symptoms
  • Revive the healthy pink appearance of your gums

To keep your smile, you need to care for your gums, too. Get your gums back in great shape. Call Kirchner Dental at 812-913-6093 for an appointment. New patients can request an exam with X-rays for just $49.

Technology Keeps Your Periodontal Disease Treatment Comfortable

When a patient has periodontal disease, we use technology involving high-speed vibration and water to remove stubborn tartar deposits from your teeth and gums. The water flushes away bacteria from under your gums as well. In comparison to hand tools often used for cleaning, our ultrasonic scaler:

  • Works more efficiently
  • Involves less scraping
  • Is more comfortable for you
  • Gets deeper into the tough-to-reach areas below your gums

We regularly use advanced equipment to make your periodontal disease treatment effective and as painless as possible. This is why we have received the Concept of Complete Dentistry Award from The Dawson Academy. This organization is dedicated to advancing dental care through education and clinical research.

Don’t Ignore Signs of Gum Disease

We’ll carefully examine your gums during every dental exam. However, you should plan to visit ASAP if you see any of these gum disease symptoms:

  • Bright red gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Pain when chewing
  • Bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth
  • Gums that feel tender or sore
  • Chronic bad breath or bad taste in your mouth

Don’t lose your teeth because of a problem with your gums. If you think you may need nonsurgical gum disease treatment in Jeffersonville, IN, call Kirchner Dental at 812-913-6093. You also can schedule online.

Common Questions About Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease can be treated in a variety of ways, but the most conservative method is with a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing. This is where your dentist or hygienist removes infection caused by bacterial plaque below and around your gumline and then smooths out your tooth roots so bacteria doesn’t return.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Your gum disease treatment should be completely comfortable. We’ll numb your gums so you don’t feel any discomfort or pain during your treatment. In addition, if you’re nervous about your procedure, we offer sedation for relaxing care. Inhaled sedation uses laughing gas.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.
