If you begin to notice symptoms like red, swollen, or bleeding gums, contact our North Charleston office, at Dental Home, right away for a periodontal screening. Our trained dentist can diagnose your condition in-house and provide preliminary treatment for an early-stage periodontal disease.

Scaling and Root Planing Treatment

Scaling and root planing is one of the most common non-surgical treatments for periodontal disease. Scaling removes bacteria from the crown and root surface of your teeth, including plaque, tartar, and calculus. Planning involves the scaling of the tooth and soft tissue below the gum line. This stops gum disease in its tracks, preventing it from spreading any further.

Dental Crown Lengthening

When your teeth appear too short, it may be because too much gum covers your teeth. This is often called a "gummy smile." At Dental Home located in North Charleston, SC, we can correct your gummy smile with a procedure known as crown lengthening. In this surgery, the excess gum tissue is removed and the bone tissue is reshaped to give your smile a more pleasing, natural appearance.

Pocket Reductions

The longer your gums are left untreated, the deeper the pockets become that form around your teeth. Deep pockets allow bacteria to grow, which leads to the breaking down of tissues and bone structures. With periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease, advanced gum disease, surgical treatment is usually the best option. Pocket reduction involves folding back your gum tissue and removing the bacteria lodged at your tooth roots. The dentist will smooth the irregular surface of the damaged bone to stop bacterial infection and to give the patient the best chance of gum tissue reattachment. Once pocket reduction is completed, gums are secured back into place.
