Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth? You could be at risk for gum disease. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, which can eventually cause tooth loss and other health problems. At Carlon Dentistry, we screen every patient for possible risk factors and symptoms. If it is determined to be necessary, a Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation will performed to asses any needed treatment.
Our highly accomplished and experienced hygienists can perform many non-surgical periodontal treatments with a level of precision and expertise not often found. Because our hygienists are here full time, they can familiarize themselves with your particular state and treatment, thereby following healing and progress in a personal way that cannot be translated to charts.
Treatments can include scaling and root planing, in which the appropriate areas are anesthetized to allow for specified deep cleaning, and the delivery of localized antimicrobial chips for precise antibacterial action. Don’t forget! With the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System, injections are painless and fast acting. Treatment options will be thoroughly discussed and individualized based on your needs and concerns.
