Gum disease treatment from Miss-Lou Family Dentistry

At Miss Lou Family Dentistry, we’re always looking for ways to provide our patients with premier results and an unbelievable experience. With gum disease, the gum disease treatment we recommend will depend entirely on your specific situation and how far advanced your periodontal disease is.

No matter the treatment we recommend, we’ll explain the process fully, ensuring you’re put in the best possible position to make the right choice for you.

Our gum disease treatment process

1. During your comprehensive exam, we’ll use our high-tech diagnostic tools to determine if you are experiencing gum disease.

2. Depending on the severity of your periodontal disease, we’ll recommend treatment. For many patients, this will mean dental deep cleanings and additional cleaning appointments.

3. We’ll continue to monitor your gum disease at your regular cleanings and exams, updating you on ways to improve your periodontal disease at home and treatment options that can ensure optimal oral health.
