Treatments For Gum Disease
- Scaling and Root Planing: Scaling and root planing is an extensive deep cleaning of the teeth and gums. During the treatment, tartar and plaque buildup are removed from the teeth. This treatment is usually used in the early stages of gum disease (gingivitis) to stop the progression of the infection.
- Laser Dentistry: Our Jacksonville dental office offers laser dentistry treatments for patients with an advanced stage of gum disease. Dr. Alexander uses a dental laser to remove diseased gum tissue and promote new healthy tissue to grow in its place. Laser dentistry allows for a quicker recovery because many patients experience little to no bleeding or swelling after treatment.
- Schedule regular visits to our Jacksonville dental office. Dr. Alexander provides periodontal screening during each visit. Catching gum disease early may minimize your chance of needing extensive treatment. Visiting our office twice a year helps keep your smile healthy and lowers your chance of developing a complex dental problem.
