Gum disease can be a serious problem – one that leads to tooth loss. It doesn’t have to be, though. As Dr. Shawn Keahey explains in our video, we treat it in our Montgomery, AL office with a deep-cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. We may also prescribe an antibiotic.
Perhaps most important, we’ll monitor your mouth closely for three to 12 months to ensure gum disease doesn’t come back. We’ll check to make sure you don’t have deep “pockets” under your gumline where bacteria can accumulate.
Watch our video for more information on gum disease, then call 334-600-1423 if you think you may need gum disease treatment.
