Non-Surgical Periodontic Therapy

Non-surgical gum therapy is a welcome relief for patients whose gums need a deeper cleaning. Dr. Anderson, East Cobb / Woodstock Dentist, can improve the gum health of his patients with non-surgical procedures such as ultrasonic scaling (cleaning) and root planing.

Our thorough and gentle approach removes the harmful bacteria and irritants from the teeth. This approach may be able to stop the progression of gum disease, saving patients from requiring gum surgery.

Gum Disease Affects More Than Gums

Doctors today are seeing more and more of a connection between the health of the mouth and that of the body. When gums are inflamed or irritated, harmful plaque and bacteria can enter the blood stream and affect other organ systems. This plaque is very likely to increase the risk of heart disease. It’s also possible that gum disease contributes to risk factors for diabetes and pregnant women delivering low birth weight babies. Keep these risks at bay with regular hygiene visits with Dr. Steven Anderson.

Our gentle gum therapy protects:

  • Gums from further infection
  • Teeth from being inhabited by plaque and bacteria
  • Peace of mind – our techniques are comfortable
  • Your body from harmful oral plaque entering the blood stream

With the right dental care, your smile not only looks and feels good, but you can live a longer, healthier life. Call our office to request your appointment or to ask about our comfortable approach for gum disease therapy.
