Treating & Preventing Your Gum Disease

Gum disease is an infection that occurs when plaque and tartar build up on your teeth and gums. If you do have gum disease, Dr. Newingham has many solutions that will help you reduce and eliminate it before you suffer any lasting damage to your gums and teeth.

When he first notices signs of gum disease, Dr. Newingham will test your saliva to determine what is causing the buildup of bacteria.

He will then recommend the following solutions:

  • Scaling and root planing procedures, which eliminate the tartar above and below the gum line to stop the infection from spreading
  • High-quality CariFree rinses or antibiotics to slow the spread of bacteria and the growth of pockets between your teeth and gums

These solutions have been very effective for most of our patients with gum disease. If you require further treatment, we can refer you to an expert who will help you fight extreme cases of the disease.
