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

While cavities are bad news, they aren’t the leading cause of tooth loss. That distinction goes to gum disease (periodontal disease). Because it can cause such extreme dental damage, we take nonsurgical gum disease treatment very seriously in our Jeffersonville, IN dentist office.

Gum Disease Treatment at Kirchner Dental Read Transcript

We check for signs of disease during every examination. If we find any, we remove the bacteria that causes gum disease with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. It will:

  • Help eliminate bacteria from above and below your gumline
  • Improve your oral health
  • Prevent the bacteria from spreading elsewhere in your body
  • Stop bleeding gums and other unpleasant symptoms
  • Restore your gums’ healthy pink appearance

To get your gums in great shape, call Kirchner Dental at 812-913-6093.

Technology Keeps Your Periodontal Disease Treatment Comfortable

As with any treatment in our office, we use high-tech tools to keep your periodontal disease treatment effective and comfortable. This commitment has earned us a Concept of Complete Dentistry Award from The Dawson Academy, an organization dedicated to advancing dental care through education and clinical research.

For gum disease, we remove stubborn tartar deposits from your teeth and gums with a tool that uses high-speed vibration and water. The water also flushes out bacteria from under your gums. Compared to the hand tools often used for cleaning, our ultrasonic scaler is:

  • More comfortable for you, as there is less scraping
  • Able to get deeper into the tough-to-reach areas below your gums
  • Faster

Don’t Ignore These Gum Disease Symptoms

We’ll carefully examine your gums during every dental exam. Call us for an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these gum disease symptoms between exams:

  • Bright red gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth, or any time
  • Gums that are tender to the touch
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Painful chewing

If you think you may need nonsurgical gum disease treatment, call Kirchner Dental at 812-913-6093.
