Periodontal Treatment in Falls Church, VA

If You Are Looking for Periodontal Treatment in Falls Church, VA, Call Tyson's Dental Esthetics.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an extremely common bacterial infection of the gums and bone that support the teeth, and it’s usually brought on by a lack of oral hygiene. Early symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen gums that tend to bleed easily, and if left untreated, it can ultimately lead to tooth loss! At Tyson's Dental Esthetics in Falls Church, VA our team will screen your gums whenever you come to see us, and should we spot the slightest sign of periodontal disease and any necessary periodontal treatment.

Common reasons for periodontal treatment:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing your teeth
  • Bright red or red-purple appearance to gums
  • Tender gums when touched
  • A shiny appearance to gums
  • Mouth sores
  • Loose teeth

At Tyson's Dental Esthetics in Falls Church, VA our dentists can perform various periodontal treatment procedures to get your gum back to a healthy status.

Scaling & Root Planing

A scaling and root planing treatment is sometimes called a “deep cleaning,” and this is because it targets the plaque and bacteria located below the gum line. With scaling, an ultrasonic cleaner will be used to break up and remove all the plaque and tartar deposits located around your gums, and then root planing will be used to gently smooth out the rough surfaces of your teeth’s roots.

Soft Tissue Laser Treatment

As part of your periodontal treatment, we may also choose to use our soft tissue laser. This tool uses an extremely concentrated beam of light to instantly vaporize harmful bacteria along the gum line, and it can also painlessly remove infected tissue. This technology allows us to be precise, and it involves very little discomfort and bleeding. In fact, when we use our soft tissue laser, you may not need any local anesthetic, and your healing time is drastically reduced.

Infection Control

At Tyson's Dental Esthetics in Falls Church, VA we can also apply a topical antibiotic to reach the small spaces where bacteria can hide. This periodontal treatment only takes a couple of minutes, but it continues working long after you leave our Falls Church, VA dental office. We may need to make another application three to four months later, but this is an effective way to kill the bacteria in your mouth and give your gums a fresh start.
