Take Control of Your Gum Health Today

At Wyoming Dental, Dr. Rohlf prioritizes preventive care and early intervention when it comes to gum health. If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease during your checkup or have noticed symptoms at home like red, tender, or bleeding gums, you’ll need treatment as soon as possible. Your dentist will take the time to listen to your concerns about your oral health. He’ll also answer all your questions about his solution for gum disease. Our practice’s personalized approach ensures a plan that addresses your unique needs, reversing gum disease and restoring your smile’s health.

Here is what you can expect:

  • Consultation – Your dentist will discuss your concerns and examine your gums to find out if you have a gum infection. He will determine whether scaling and root planing is the right course of action.
  • Preparation – Before beginning treatment, your dentist will ensure your comfort. He will use a topical anesthetic like Gingicaine that provides a numbing sensation around your gums. Laughing gas is also available if you need to take the edge off.
  • Scaling – Using ultrasonic cleaning technology, our team will remove plaque and tartar buildup from both above and below the gum line. This eliminates the harmful bacteria that contribute to gum disease.
  • Root Planing – After removing the buildup, your dentist will smooth the rough surfaces of your tooth roots. This promotes gum tissue reattachment to the teeth, creating a healthy seal and preventing future infection.
  • Aftercare – We’ll provide detailed instructions on caring for your gums after the procedure, including proper brushing and flossing techniques to maintain optimal oral health.
  • Follow Up Visits – Your dentist may recommend more frequent dental checkups if you are vulnerable to reinfection. This helps keep gum infection at bay.
