Non-Surgical Gum Therapy in Etobicoke

Did you know that it's still possible to develop gum disease even if you brush and floss regularly? In fact, gum disease is one of the most common oral infections in Canada. Because it develops gradually often without visible symptoms, gum disease can be hard to notice. This is why regular checkups are extremely important because it allows us to check and treat the condition before it becomes serious.

Mimico Creek Dental recommends non-surgical gum therapy for more serious forms of gum disease. This type of therapy involves using a number of treatments including local medication, curettage, and root-planing. We will also give you a local anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable during your procedure. Your therapy sessions will likely be spread out over a period of time to maximize treatment success.

Local medication: This is the first step to treating the infected gum sites by administering a local medication.

Curettage: This involves removing the infected gum tissues around the teeth so that the chronically inflamed gum tissues can heal.

Root-planing: This is the process of removing and eliminating micro amounts of the root surfaces.

If these treatments are not enough to treat your condition, we may recommend a periodontist, who is a dentist that specializes in the surgical treatment of gum tissues. Contact our Dentist in Etobicoke to set up a complimentary consultation today.
