Comprehensive Gum Disease Treatment at Alta Vista Dental Care

At Alta Vista Dental Care, we understand the challenges and risks associated with gum disease. Our team offers a range of treatment options tailored to the severity of your condition, always beginning with the least invasive methods. Our commitment is to restore your oral health effectively, whether through non-surgical techniques or advanced surgical procedures.

Scaling and Root Planing: A Foundation for Healthy Gums

Our first approach to combatting gum disease is a deep-cleaning process known as scaling and root planing. This procedure involves the careful removal of plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line using advanced ultrasonic cleaning tools. By smoothing the tooth and root surfaces, we create an optimal environment for gum tissue reattachment, setting the stage for a healthier mouth.

Regular after-care is crucial. Post-treatment, we emphasize the importance of diligent oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, and avoiding tobacco. Regular checkups at Alta Vista Dental Care are essential to monitor your gums and prevent the recurrence of gum disease.

Restoring Health When Damage is Extensive: For cases where gum disease has caused significant damage to tissues or bone, Alta Vista Dental Care offers several surgical treatments:

Pocket Depth Reduction

Also known as flap surgery, this procedure involves folding back the gum tissue to remove harmful bacteria and hardened plaque. By reducing the pocket depth, we help your gums reattach to your teeth, aiding in the recovery of your oral health.


In severe cases where bone and tissue loss have occurred, we perform regeneration procedures. These may involve bone grafts or applying special proteins to stimulate tissue growth, aiming to repair areas damaged by gum disease.

Soft-Tissue Grafts

To address gum recession, a common symptom of gum disease, we perform soft-tissue grafts. This involves transplanting tissue to cover exposed roots, reducing sensitivity and restoring the gums to their healthy state.

Each treatment at Alta Vista Dental Care is customized to your unique oral health needs. Our goal is to not only treat gum disease but to provide you with the knowledge and tools to maintain a healthy, disease-free mouth.
