Gum (periodontal) disease is a progressive condition that occurs when plaque and tartar buildup damages and destroys that supportive soft tissue and bone surrounding teeth. In the earliest stages, known as gingivitis, the symptoms are mild. Many patients are completely unaware of this common oral health issue until they are already suffering from the more advanced form of gum disease, periodontitis. The best way to keep your smile whole and healthy is to partner with our trusted team to prevent gum disease in Aurora, CO with regular professional teeth cleanings and thorough at-home hygiene.
Periodontal disease does not need to harm your oral and overall health! We are trained and experienced in comprehensive gum disease treatment and periodontal maintenance to ensure the health of your smile long-term. There are numerous symptoms of gum disease, but unfortunately, many of them are so mild that they go unnoticed by patients until the condition is already very advanced.
The signs of gum disease
Bleeding gums while eating or cleaning teeth
Swollen or discolored gums

Non-surgical gum disease treatment
We provide scaling and root planing, a non-surgical procedure and the first step in treating gum disease. Scaling and root planing is a “deep clean” of the teeth, above and below the gum line, removing bacteria before it has a chance to spread and cause damage. Dental scaling removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and dental planing smooths their rough surfaces so gum tissue can reattach. After comprehensive gum disease treatment, we offer periodontal maintenance. These routine deep cleanings occur every 3-4 months and are designed to keep your teeth, gums, and bone healthy and free from disease. Our experienced dentists look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health through personalized gum disease treatment!
