Periodontal Disease

Merion Village Dental is committed to giving our patients a vibrant and healthy smile, even in the face of gum disease.

Our comprehensive periodontal therapy program helps save smiles while treating the symptoms of damaging gum disease.

Don’t wait any longer if you are experiencing:

  • Gums that bleed when you brush or floss
  • Bad breath
  • Visible tartar buildup
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Bone loss

If you suffer from one or more of these conditions, it is likely that you are experiencing a form of gum disease. We diagnose gum disease through a series of radiographs and a clinical examination, pinpointing the severity of the disease and creating a custom treatment plan that will save your gums, teeth, and smile.

Deep Cleanings and nonsurgical periodontal therapy

Our comprehensive periodontal therapy involves cleaning calcified bacteria such as tartar from the teeth, making routine oral hygiene easier. We create a clean environment within your smile so that gum disease can be eliminated.

For most cases, we will schedule 2 separate appointments to fully clean each side of the mouth individually. Ultrasonic instrumentation provides easy, effective bacteria removal. Local anesthesia or laughing gas may be administered to lightly treat discomfort, but deeper sedation is also available upon request. We may recommend a follow-up appointment to ensure that symptoms are reversed.

Treat gum disease early to protect your smile

With early care, Merion Village Dental may be able us to eliminate gum disease completely in our patients. If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease, chat with a member of our staff today to schedule an appointment with us!
