Healthy Gums for Better Oral Health

If you want a healthy and beautiful smile, it starts with healthy gums. Unhealthy gums can make you more susceptible to gum diseases, which can lead to tooth decay and loss. At Harmony Family Dentistry, we offer specialized periodontal treatment, reinforcing the health of your gums, and by extension your teeth and your entire mouth.

If you’re concerned about gum disease or the long-term health of your teeth, periodontal treatment is a must. Call us today to schedule an in-office consultation.

Benefits of Healthy Gums

Are your gums receding, or do they sometimes start bleeding during brushing or flossing? Those may be signs that you should consider gum health treatment. Healthy gums look good, feel good, and have a range of other benefits to your overall oral health.

  • Fresher breath: Skip the mints (which only mask the unpleasant odor of halitosis) and remove the bacteria that cause unpleasant breath.
  • Reduced risk of gum disease: Avoid gingivitis and periodontitis.
  • Supports teeth: Your teeth are more likely to become loose or fall out if you have unhealthy gums.
  • Improves overall health: Believe it or not, keeping your gums healthy can help you live longer. Gum disease can contribute to other conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

Periodontal Treatments Available We Offer

During your free consultation, Dr. Julie Jang, DDS will evaluate your gum health and recommend any necessary treatments. We offer a variety of state-of-the-art gum health treatments in our comfortable Vancouver WA office.

Perio Protect

Dr. Julie Jang is an official Perio Protect Provider. This innovative treatment uses a medicated formula that can reach deep within the gums to kill bacteria that brushing and flossing cannot reach. At your appointment, Dr. Julie Jang takes digital images that are sent to a lab to create customized trays for your mouth. Once the trays are ready, Dr. Julie Jang develops a treatment schedule for you to follow at home to minimize the number of trips you need to make to our office.

After using Perio Protect, you will not only have healthier gums with less bleeding, but you should also notice that your breath smells better and your teeth look whiter — that’s because the medicated solution includes hydrogen peroxide, which also brightens your teeth. Many patients can avoid periodontal surgery with this treatment, while others use it after surgery to maintain good gum health.

Laser Bacterial Reduction

Laser bacterial reduction (LBR) is a laser gum treatment that Harmony Family Dentistry has incorporated as part of the pre-cleaning routine at the beginning of your biannual appointment. LBR uses laser energy to kill bacteria on and under the gums. Believe it or not, bacteria can spread easily to other areas of the gums during a standard cleaning, so this dramatically decreases the chances of your hygienist transporting bacteria from one area of your gums to another. Beyond that, destroying the bacteria also keeps your gums cleaner.

Laser Curettage

Another popular laser periodontal treatment is laser curettage. This therapy is ideal for patients with moderate to advanced-stage gum disease. Laser energy can gently kill clusters of bacteria trapped within your gums. It is highly effective at reducing the pockets in your gums. Laser treatment is gentler than surgical options and promotes better tissue regeneration so that you can maintain healthy gums.

Schedule an Appointment for Periodontal Treatment

Whether your gums bleed, your breath has been declining, or you just want to invest in your long-term oral health, Harmony Family Dentistry can help you. We offer cutting-edge periodontal and gum health treatments to patients of all ages.
