Restore Your Gum Health With Our Expertise

Visiting us for regular checkups is the key to maintaining a healthy smile. We can spot signs of gum disease before it worsens and becomes problematic to your dental health. It’s especially important because gum disease can sneak up on you without you even noticing it.

If we do spot signs of the disease, our in-house periodontist will work with you on restoring your healthy gumline. Our treatment method includes a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. Here is what you can expect:

  • Scaling – This process cleans around and under your gumline to get rid of the hardened plaque and tartar that is causing the gum inflammation.
  • Root Planing – We’ll smooth out your exposed tooth roots to reduce the risk for reinfection and make it easier for your gums to heal.

In instances where you show significant gum recession, we can offer a comfortable, non-surgical treatment that restores your gumline for a healthier appearance. Our periodontist can also do a grafting procedure that uses your own tissue or a donor’s tissue.

If you have noticed symptoms such as bleeding when you brush or floss, swollen or sensitive gums, or inflamed gum tissue, it’s time to make an appointment. For gum disease treatment in Brookline, call 617-397-3958. You can also schedule online.
