Periodontal Disease Treatment in Independence and Blue Springs, MO

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a serious condition that can lead to significant oral health problems if left untreated. At Kansas City Smiles, we specialize in effective and compassionate care to help you maintain healthy gums and a beautiful smile.

Gum disease treatment is essential for preventing the progression of periodontal disease. Whether you are in the early stages of gingivitis or have more advanced periodontitis, we have the expertise to help.

Common signs of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose or sensitive teeth

Periodontal disease is primarily caused by plaque buildup. Poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetic predisposition, and certain medical conditions can increase your risk.

  • What is gum recession?

    Gum recession is a common consequence of untreated gum disease. It can lead to tooth sensitivity and increase the risk of tooth loss. Our team provides specialized treatments to halt gum recession and promote tissue regeneration, ensuring your gums stay healthy and supportive.

  • How is gum disease treated?

    Our gum disease treatment options are designed to address the underlying causes and restore your oral health. These may include:

    Professional dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar

    • Scaling and root planing to deep clean your gums

    • Antibiotic treatments to eliminate infection

    • Surgical procedures for advanced cases

  • What is Perio Protect?

    Perio Protect is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that targets the bacteria causing periodontal disease. This method uses custom-fit trays to deliver medication deep below the gum line, where brushing and flossing can’t reach.

    The benefits of Perio Protect include:

    • Easy and comfortable to use
    • Effective at reducing harmful bacteria
    • Can be used alongside other treatments
    • Promotes healing and reduces inflammation

    Our dental team will create a personalized Perio Protect plan to complement your existing gum disease treatments, providing a comprehensive approach to managing and overcoming periodontal disease.

  • How is laser dentistry used to treat gum disease?

    Laser dentistry offers a less invasive and highly effective solution for treating gum disease. Using advanced laser technology, our dental team can precisely target and remove infected tissue and bacteria without the need for traditional surgical methods.

    Benefits of laser dentistry include:

    • Minimal discomfort and faster healing times
    • Reduced bleeding and swelling
    • High precision and accuracy
    • Lower risk of infection

    Laser treatments can be combined with other periodontal therapies to enhance results and ensure optimal gum health.
