Why Choose Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for Gum Disease Therapy?

What Does Gum Disease Treatment Entail?

If caught early enough, we can reverse the effects of gum disease with non-surgical periodontal therapy. This typically involves scaling and root planing. We deep clean the infected soft tissues, remove gum disease-causing bacteria and toxins, and then modify the tooth roots to make it harder for these irritants to take hold.

Periodontal Maintenance and Aftercare
