Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, attacks the gums and the bones in the jaw that support the teeth. Symptoms of gum disease can oftentimes be subtle, and patients may not know that they have any issues of note until they have escalated to the point where the health and stability of teeth is in jeopardy.
Gum disease is very treatable. The earlier that issues are identified and treated, the better the prognosis is for both the teeth and the overall health of the patient.
Gum disease treatment is the in-clinic treatment that addresses the health of the gums. Your gum disease treatment will depend on factors that are unique to you. These could include your personal health history and the current stage of your gum disease.
If your gum disease has progressed beyond gingivitis, the first step in treating your gum disease will typically involve a deep cleaning that is known as a scaling and root planing. If your periodontal disease has progressed to the point that scaling and root planing are not sufficient, you may need periodontal surgery.

The signs of gum disease may be very subtle, and you may not necessarily know that your gums are in bad health. There are some signs, however, that make it very clear you are in need of an intervention by your dentist.
- Red, swollen and tender gums.
- Bleeding gums when you brush, floss or eat certain hard foods.
- Receding gums.
- Loose teeth.
- Noticeable pus between the teeth and on the gums.
- Sores in the mouth.
- Persistent bad breath, even after brushing.
Gum disease is a serious infection that can lead to tooth loss if it’s not treated in time.
The type of treatment that you will undergo will depend largely on the stage and severity of your gum disease. We can offer a treatment solution that will work to meet your oral healthcare needs, while taking your individual factors into consideration.
At Gallagher Dental we offer our patients the benefits of the WATERLASE hard and soft tissue laser, to help us repair periodontal damage.
Your teeth and gums, like all organic material, have a high water content. Gums have a much higher water content than teeth. The WATERLASE, with a water affinity wavelength can treat a variety of conditions in the oral cavity. Gums, teeth, bone, inflammation and infection can all be delicately treated by adjusting the settings on the WATERLASE.
