Return Your Gums to Health With Gum Disease Treatment in Chattanooga

Your teeth are the central point of your smile, so it’s natural to focus on them. But you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. It’s also common, with half of all American adults having some form of it. We’re serious about keeping both your gums and teeth healthy with gum disease treatment in Chattanooga.

We Stop Gum Disease in Its Early Stages

We look for indications of gum disease during every dental exam. In the earliest stages of the disease, a simple dental cleaning can stop it from progressing. In cases where gums have begun pulling away from teeth, creating “pockets” where bacteria can collect, we use a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. The process removes bacteria from above and below your gumline and smooths your tooth roots to make it harder for bacteria to accumulate. We may also apply an antibiotic for additional bacteria-fighting strength.

We’ll review your oral hygiene practices with you and likely make suggestions for improvements. We may recommend:

  • An electric toothbrush
  • A periodontal toothbrush
  • Application of fluoride
  • Mouth rinses or similar products

Consult Us ASAP If You Experience Gum Disease Symptoms


Painful gums or gums that bleed when you brush are two common gum disease symptoms. Yet some people don’t experience them. Call us ASAP if you notice:

  • Gums that look red instead of pink
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that appear to be receding
