We treat gum disease many different ways. We can do deep cleanings to remove all of the calculus and debris below the gumline and all the toxins. We want to make sure that that's all removed so that it's not continuously eating away at the bone that holds your teeth in. You need all of that bone, and everything needs to be healthy.
Once that is done, we also can help you with using lasers. We have antibiotics that we can place underneath the gum so that it can help continue to kill the bacteria that's underneath those gums. Another procedure that we have is called OralDNA, and that checks the bacteria in your mouth so that we can also treat the bacteria causing the disease.
There are several different ways that we can help you maintain your gum disease.
- Restore your gums to good health
- Prevent further problems such as tooth loss
- Increase your confidence to show others a genuine smile
- Help you appear more attractive and vibrant
- Stop bleeding and discomfort when brushing and flossing

Reclaim Your Gum Health
Gum disease is not a condition to be taken lightly. Left untreated, it has the potential to cause significant smile damage, including painful, bleeding gums and even tooth loss. That’s why twice-yearly checkups with Dr. Marshall and Dr. Jasek are so important. We can head off early signs of gum disease and help you avoid bigger problems.
If we suspect gum disease, we will use MyPerioPath® diagnostic testing to help us identify the particular strains of bacteria that are causing your problems. With this information, we can better tailor a custom gum treatment plan to get your mouth back into shape.
Deep cleaning treatment with scaling and root planing will often take care of gum infections. We’ll first remove (scale) plaque and tartar from around and below the gumline, then smooth (plane) your teeth roots to help prevent reinfection.
If needed, we can also use a special low-power dental laser to remove bacteria so your gums can begin the healing process. Arestin, an antibiotic treatment we can apply directly to your gums, can also play a major role in eliminating gum disease and restoring health to your gums.
