Don’t let gum disease affect your health and wellbeing
At Sonja Sproul Dentistry, we’re dedicated to helping our patients maintain optimal oral and whole-body health. Our expert team uses cutting-edge technology and techniques to provide you with individualized periodontal care. Whether you need non-surgical or surgical gum disease treatment, we’ll help you take an active role in improving your gum health and ensure you’re on a path toward total wellness.
The importance of early detection and treatment
Early detection and treatment of periodontal disease is crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. The bacteria that live in your mouth when you have gum disease can cross into your bloodstream and contribute to various health issues, including heart disease, respiratory disease, and diabetes. The sooner we catch and address gum disease, the easier it will be to treat it!
If you’re experiencing any symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, or loose teeth, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Periodontal Therapy Treatments
Non-Surgical Scaling and Root Planing
Non-surgical scaling and root planing (SRP) is an effective treatment for early-stage periodontal disease. This procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothing out the roots of your teeth to promote healing and prevent further damage.
Surgical Approach to Scaling and Root Planing
For more advanced cases of periodontal disease, we offer a surgical approach to scaling and root planing. This may include bone grafting, a procedure that involves adding bone to the jaw to help support and strengthen the teeth.
Periodontal Maintenance Therapy
After periodontal therapy, we will recommend periodontal maintenance therapy to keep your gums healthy and prevent future problems. Our team will work with you to create a customized maintenance plan that meets your needs, which may include more frequent dental cleaning treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is a serious condition that can damage the soft tissue and bone that supports your teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other health problems. It’s caused by bacteria that thrive in the mouth, leading to inflammation and other complications.
What are the risks of untreated periodontal disease?
- Increasing pain in the gums and teeth
- Receding gumline
- Change in bite
- Loosening teeth and eventual tooth loss
- Weakened and deteriorating jaw bone
When is surgical treatment necessary?
If non-surgical scaling and root planing treatment is not enough, our surgical approach to periodontal therapy may be necessary. We’ll evaluate your health and recommend the best treatment plan for you. Our team of experts is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care and ensuring your comfort throughout the entire process.
How should I keep my gums healthy after treatment?
Good at-home oral hygiene habits combined with regular check-ups and cleanings are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. Our team of skilled professionals will work with you to create a personalized maintenance plan that meets your unique needs.
