Safeguarding Your Entire Smile

Gum disease is extremely common and extremely damaging to your oral and overall health. Not only can it cause your gums to appear red and irritated and cause eventual tooth loss, but it can also negatively affect the rest of your body as well. This infectious bacteria in the gums can easily spread throughout the bloodstream and contribute to conditions like heart disease. Periodontal therapy offers a solution for gum disease, often saving smiles and preventing more serious complications.

What is Periodontal Therapy?

Periodontal therapy is how we treat gum disease. We will thoroughly clean the pockets around your teeth, navigating below the gum line to remove infection-causing bacteria. We will then smooth the tooth root surfaces of rough patches. This makes the area less hospitable to bacteria and debris going forward, preventing recurrences of gum disease.

Scaling & Root Planing

Think of scaling and root planing as a special dental cleaning that is focused solely on your gum line and tooth roots. First, we’ll remove any harmful plaque and bacteria buildup from the gums (targeting the small spaces between the gums and teeth), and then we’ll gently smooth out the roots of the teeth. This will prevent plaque from accumulating around the gums in the future, lowering the chances of reinfection.

Soft Tissue Laser

For patients with more moderate periodontal disease, our soft tissue laser helps us deliver a gentle and precise treatment using a highly focused beam of light. With it, we can instantly eliminate bacteria below the gum line and even remove infected tissue, all the while causing little to no bleeding, swelling, or pain. Treatment with the laser is so comfortable that most patients don’t even need local anesthetic to remain completely relaxed.

If it’s been a while since your last dental exam or you’re experiencing symptoms of gum disease, contact Bethel Dental in Accra, Ghana for an appointment. We serve patients from all around Accra and all over Ghana.
