I have gum disease - what are my treatment options?

Couple smiling together | Gum Disease Treatment Bangor MEEvery case of gum disease is unique, and there may be different ways to treat this condition depending on how advanced your case is. At Maine Family Dental, we offer several different treatment options so that we can treat your gums in the best manner possible.

To treat the early stages of gum disease, we may be able to make simple recommendations on ways that you can improve your oral health routine and stop gum disease before it progresses.

Scaling and Root Planing

For slightly more advanced cases, we recommend scaling and root planing. This is a deep-cleaning procedure in which your dentist will remove harmful plaque from below the surface of your gums; and then smooth away the rough surfaces on the roots of your teeth where bacteria collect.

Medication and Ultrasonix Treatment

Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may also prescribe medication to kill the bacteria in your mouth that cause periodontitis.

We offer the latest technologies to help fight your battle against gum disease, including Ultrasonix and laser gum disease treatment. These options offer the use of less invasive measures to eradicate this harmful disease from your mouth.
