Gum Disease Treatment

Dr. Charles Smith offers cutting-edge gum disease treatment tailored to address various stages of gum disease. From non-surgical interventions to personalized maintenance plans, patients can trust in the clinic’s proficiency and dedication to halt the progression of gum disease.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical dental procedure for treating gum disease. 

  • Scaling involves removing plaque and tartar from teeth surfaces.
  • Root planing smooths tooth roots. 

By eliminating bacteria and promoting gum reattachment, scaling and root planing can help stop gum disease progression and restore oral health.

Dr. Smith’s Tips for Routine At-Home Periodontal Care

Maintaining good oral hygiene at home is crucial for periodontal care. Here are some essential tips to follow:

  • Brush Regularly: Brush your teeth at least twice daily with fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque and prevent gum disease.
  • Floss Daily: Flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from between teeth and along the gumline.
  • Use Mouthwash: An antimicrobial or fluoride mouthwash can further reduce bacteria and strengthen teeth.
  • Healthy Diet: Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Limit sugary and acidic foods.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking water helps wash away food particles and bacteria, maintaining oral health.
  • Avoid Tobacco: Smoking and tobacco use increase the risk of gum disease. Quitting can improve gum health.
  • Regular Dental Visits: Schedule regular check-ups with Dr. Smith at our Sterling Heights dental office for professional cleanings and evaluations.
  • Use Soft Brushes: Choose a soft-bristle toothbrush to avoid damaging gums and enamel.
  • Replace Toothbrush: Change your toothbrush or head every three to four months or sooner if bristles fray.
