Danger Beyond Your Gums

What starts as red, painful, infected gums can progress into conditions as serious as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Scalpel-Free Gum Disease Treatment

Rowan Family Dentistry has a secret weapon against gum disease. This incredible technology performs the role of a scalpel, sutures, and medications. The laser destroys bacteria while we make incisions, then helps us seal the treatment area afterward. With it we can deliver care that’s faster and more precise than conventional methods and produces less pain and bleeding. Fewer post-treatment complications too. This tool has revolutionized gum disease treatment—and we use it right here to defeat gum disease in New Albany, MS.

Key Gum Disease Treatments

Scaling And Root Planing

During scaling we clear bacteria from between your gums and teeth. With root planing, we do the same down at the tooth root level, then smooth out the roots to prevent bacteria from returning. With scaling and root planing we’ll make your gums look and feel healthy again!

Periodontal Maintenance

After you’ve undergone your initial gum disease treatment, we usually have you come back to our office for periodontal maintenance several times per year. These appointments give us the opportunity to perform additional scaling and root planing to keep gum disease-causing bacteria at bay. Periodontal maintenance, in combination with a regular home dental hygiene regimen, can keep your gum disease from ever causing you problems again.
