If you do have gum disease, we start out by doing deep cleanings. After we remove the debris from underneath the gumline, there's a bunch of things we can do as far as systemically. We can give you antibiotics. The thing with gum disease, it's very patient dependent. So if we do all those things and the patient doesn't come back and does the same, that their home care is bad, I mean, you're going to be in the same place. Okay? So how we deal with gum disease is like we deal with cleanings. You've got to come back for those recalls. We emphasize the maintenance aspect of it, because without that, you're not really doing them any good.

We Take Action Against Gum Disease
Gum disease can lurk in your mouth without your even knowing it. That’s because in its early stages, there are often no visible symptoms. By the time you notice that your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, or that your gums are red and puffy, gum disease already has a firm hold on your mouth.
Your dentist at West Valley Dental can help, however. We offer nonsurgical gum disease treatment using a “deep cleaning” technique. Here’s what we’ll do:
- We’ll first numb your mouth to ensure that your treatment is completely comfortable. Sedation is even available if you want it.
- Then we’ll use special dental tools to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that have built up around and under your gumline.
- Next, we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. Smoothing the roots will also help new gum tissue to grow.
Our Renton gum disease treatment can have your gums healthy again in no time! If you think your gums need help, call us today at 425-272-9140 to schedule an appointment.
