Advanced Gum Disease and Gum Care Procedures

Dr. Chuck Stewart and the team at Varsity Family Dental Centre perform a wide range of periodontal services and procedures that treat gum disease and improve overall gum health. Healthy gums protect the teeth and reduce the risk of infection and disease that can affect other parts of the body. Our dentists in Calgary, AB, can perform laser dentistry and advanced procedures to treat gum disease and other gum-related problems. Turn to us for scaling and root planing for gum disease, gum re-contouring and gingivectomy procedures.

Scaling and Root Planing
Many cases of gum disease are easy to treat with scaling and root planing therapy. This treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia and involves removing plaque and tartar buildup deep below the gum line while resurfacing the tooth. Once the infection is cleared, the gums typically reattach to the teeth, thereby reducing periodontal pocketing.
Gingivectomy
If other gum disease treatments have failed to treat your case of severe periodontal or gum disease, Dr. Stewart may recommend a gingivectomy. This involves removing diseased gum tissue using a surgical technique. The gums will heal shortly after treatment and this procedure typically results in a reduction of pocket depth between the teeth and gums.
