At Riverside Dental, our dentists and team believe that the gums and soft tissues that support your teeth are an important aspect of your smile and deserve high-quality care. We are pleased to offer a variety of measures and treatments to ensure your periodontal care is effective and fast. The main focus of periodontal care is to prevent gingivitis, gum disease, and other negative conditions that could damage your gums.
Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums and is the precursor to gum disease. If left untreated, you can lose gum tissue and eventually lose your teeth. To treat these conditions, we offer a wide variety of deep cleaning methods and medication, including scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing are designed to remove infected gum tissue and disease while preventing further decay from forming. Dr. Spencer and Dr. Moshea use an ultrasonic scaler to complete these treatments with precision and ultimate comfort.
For more advanced cases, we may also suggest Arestin®, a powerful medication that can heal your gums and kill disease. If you would like more information about gingivitis in Jacksonville, Florida, and all of the ways it can be treated, please contact us today. We never want you to wait to get the care you need and deserve.
