What Is Gum Disease? 

Gum disease is a general term for a build-up of bacteria and inflammation of the gum line. Typically speaking, gum disease can be caused by poor oral care routines, skipping dental appointments, genetics, advanced age, or chronic illness.

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Premature Or Low-Weight Babies

Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning) 

patient receiving a root planing procedureScaling and root planing (SRP) is one of the most common procedures for treating gingivitis by deep cleaning below the gum line and smoothing the surface of the tooth. Scaling and root planing removes plaque, bacteria, and acid buildup that can cause gum inflammation. 

A simple SRP helps to restore and promote healthier teeth, gums, and overall oral health while also preventing all stages of gum disease. 

Laser Gum Treatments 

Dr. Khanna uses cutting-edge soft tissue lasers to help combat the signs of gum disease. This advanced technology is used in a wide range of gum treatments and offers heightened precision and control. Laser treatments are generally preferred by most patients, as they are generally faster and less invasive than conventional surgical gum treatments.
