Restore Gum Health and Protect Your Smile with Gum Disease Treatment in Chester, VA

Don’t risk your smile. Make your appointment today.

Gum disease can lurk in your mouth, often without any obvious signs. Left untreated, it can sneak up on you and damage your smile. However, with the help of our periodontal services, you can combat gum disease.

Dr. Felton will treat your gums to:

  • Remove hidden infection beneath your gumline
  • Help guard against gum recession and tooth loss
  • Give you a more attractive smile you’ll feel confident in
  • Help fight chronic halitosis (bad breath)

Catch Gum Disease Early to Preserve a Healthy Smile

Gum disease is one of the most underdiagnosed oral problems. Some health professionals estimate that up to 48 percent of adults ages 30-64 have some form of gum disease. At Felton Dentistry, we maintain a high bar for what we consider “healthy.” Treating gum disease is a big focus for our dental practice, and we have several techniques to restore oral health.

The first step toward treating gum disease is a thorough examination. That’s why it’s so important to visit Dr. Felton at least twice a year for regular exams. Early detection of gum disease will make your treatment more effective and less costly.

If we find evidence of gum disease in your mouth, our first step is usually scaling and root planing. Using special tools, your dentist will gently remove (scale) the built-up tartar and bacteria on your teeth roots below the gumline. Then we will smooth (plane) the roots to make it more difficult for bacteria to grow back there. Depending on your situation, we may need to repeat this procedure several times per year.

More severe gum disease may require using antibiotics to help fight the infection. If needed, we can also recommend certain specialty toothpastes and mouthwashes that will help prevent bacteria from building up again. In addition, we can show you the best ways to brush and floss at home to keep your teeth and gums as clean as possible.
