When looking at options for gum disease treatment, each patient’s needs must be evaluated carefully, and that includes an evaluation of the progress of the symptoms and each one’s severity. That’s why Dr. Ferrier offers a wide variety of treatments designed to work at different stages and for different symptoms of various gum diseases. As a prosthodontist, the doctor specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. That includes bridges, dental implants, and even dentures. In addition to those services, he also offers periodontics to treat and control gingivitis and other gum diseases.

Gum Treatments Offered at Our Office

These treatment options are often used together for more complex cases, and each one is designed to help with a different phase of your recovery from gum disease.

  • Scaling and root planing to remove infected tissue and allow the mouth a chance to recover
  • Gum disease therapy to treat the gum tissue and help it return to health while discouraging the overgrowth of bacteria and other microbes
  • Soft tissue recontouring to restore the appearance of a healthy smile after more intensive therapies to remove damaged tissue
  • Periodontal maintenance to check up on your progress after treatment and prevent a resurgence of symptoms

These treatments will help remove infected tissue and encourage the regrowth of healthy tissue for most patients. When advanced gum disease leads to tooth loss, Dr. Ferrier also offers advanced dental implants that can easily replace missing teeth, whether you lost one, a span, or an entire set of teeth.

Make an Appointment for Gum Disease Treatment

If you have many of the common symptoms of gum disease, it’s time to make an appointment for treatment. Delaying treatment only makes the need for intervention more pressing and the intervention more extreme. The sooner you act, the sooner you can enjoy a comfortable, healthy smile.
