Nonsurgical Treatment of Gum Disease – Alhambra

Posted August 27th, 2013 by Dr. Chao and filed in Gum Disease

We use procedures like laser-assisted scaling and root planing in cases of gum disease and our technique has been quite effective. The scaling will help remove the tartar which has built up between the gum and the teeth and thus will remove the destructive bacteria that accompanies this.

In addition to this, we also use anti-bacterial home therapy coordinated with an intense, in-office program of infection control to address severe or hopeless cases. Most importantly, our success has been built upon our relationship with our patients. Our patients with severe, hopeless gum disease are informed of their critical role in infection control. We consistently teach our patients on various new ways to clean and remove infection from their teeth and gums with special FDA devices. We especially emphasize the need for regular follow-up treatment that is indispensable to a successful outcome. We are grateful for so many diligent, compliant patients with severe, hopeless gum diseases who have been able to save their teeth for the long-term without surgical intervention.
