Targeted Gum Disease Treatments Restore Your Oral Health
Don't Lose Your Teeth
Gum disease can take its toll on your oral health and overall health and well-being. Bleeding gums, bad breath and loose teeth interfere with your quality of life but we can reverse damage in the early stages. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease or have gum disease symptoms, turn to the team at Standley Shores Dental Group to learn about treatment options.
We offer minimally invasive treatment with laser therapy and will save you the time of scheduling appointments with a periodontist. We also have sedation dentistry options available if you have dental anxiety or fear.
Laser Gum Therapy
This is a minimally invasive and virtually painless procedure that is suitable for patients with moderate to advanced stages of gum disease. Patients enjoy minimal downtime and laser gum surgery has a proven success rate. Most patients are in and out of our office within a few hours and can return to their normal activities shortly afterwards. We use the latest dental laser technologies to provide a high level of care for our gum disease patients.
Scaling and Root Planing
This is a nonsurgical treatment for gum disease and works by removing plaque and tartar buildup around the base of the tooth. We use ultrasonic tools to polish the teeth so the gums can heal. This reduces periodontal pocketing and restores the health of your gums.
If you have very deep pockets around the teeth but the infection still hasn’t damaged supporting bone tissue, a gingivectomy may be the best match for you. This procedure involves cleaning away diseased gum tissue and reducing periodontal pocketing.

Every dentist I went to I experienced pain. After awhile what seeps into your mind is "I'm tired of having pain" and people talk about "well, they have anxiety" — I didn't have anxiety; I had fear, all capital letters. I met Dr. Rachel Barone, and it just clicked. She told me about oral sedation, and it's one of those trust factors that you have to give it a try. That was two years ago and she was able to keep my upper teeth.
