Treat periodontal disease and gum sensitivity

Do you notice blood in the sink after brushing your teeth? Do your gums appear red and swollen? Believe it or not, bleeding and sensitive gums are extremely common. While the issue could stem from any number of issues, the main culprit is generally gum disease.

Sensitive Gums Treatment Options

Depending on your unique situation, we’ll recommend different sensitive gums treatment options that will address the root cause. Generally, our treatment recommendation will be for periodontal therapy, including a deep cleaning and more frequent teeth cleanings.

Deep cleanings remove tartar below the gumline, where regular cleanings do not reach. Using specialized tools, we remove periodontal disease-causing bacteria, tartar, and plaque.

This sensitive gums treatment is completed is 2 steps:

  • Scaling: All plaque and tartar pockets are completely removed from underneath your gum line.
  • Root planing: Your tooth roots are smoothed using a scaling tool, helping your teeth naturally reattach to your gums.

No matter the case, we’ll perform a comprehensive exam and take any needed x-rays to ensure that periodontal therapy and a deep cleaning are the right choice for you.
