The gums and other supporting tissues of your mouth are crucial to the health of your smile. If you suffer from periodontal disease, it is important to receive high-quality, professional periodontal treatment to restore the health of your smile and halt the progress of the disease. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) build up on the teeth, the bacteria can lead to infection and inflammation in the gum tissues. If periodontal disease is allowed to progress untreated, it can result in a receding gum line, tooth loss, and bone loss. Gum treatment in Brownsburg, Indiana can prevent these serious consequences and improve the health of your smile.
One common type of periodontal treatment we offer at Brownsburg Family Dental Care is scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing are deep cleaning methods that focus on removing bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the teeth both above and below the gum line. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Todd Eder, and his dental team are skilled in scaling and root planing to ensure that you achieve the results you need for a healthier smile.
