Gum Disease Treatment in Escondido
Periodontitis, also known as gum disease, can damage your mouth’s soft tissue and undermine the bone supporting your teeth. This disease is very common and, if caught and treated early, damage can be reversed. Book an appointment today and we’ll work with you one-on-one to create a personalized treatment plan that best fits you.
Osseous surgery: Harmful bacteria can sometimes get trapped between our gums and teeth. Osseous surgery, also known as pocket reduction, helps fight gum infections by cleaning out bacteria.
Soft tissue grafting: Damaged gums may recede over time, leaving more of your natural teeth exposed. This can lead to an increased risk of infection. Soft tissue from the roof of a patients’ mouth can be grafted into gums, covering up exposed areas.
Crown lengthening: Some people have a “gummy” smile, meaning that their gums cover much of their teeth. Crown lengthening removes excess gum tissue to make teeth look longer.
