Cleanings & Gum Disease Treatment
Get a clean and healthy smile with our high-tech hygiene!
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. And gum disease can negatively affect not just the health of your teeth, but of your body too. Research has shown that periodontal disease is associated with several other diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, respiratory disease and cancer.
We use advances in modern dental technology to effectively treat gum disease here at our office. We combine gentle ultrasonic gum therapy, a deep cleaning and antibiotic therapy to fight gum disease.
We also offer expert gum disease prevention counseling. Over the decades our advanced gum care has saved many of our patients from needing to undergo gum surgery.
Ultrasonic Cleanings & Soft Tissue Management
The American Dental Association states that 80% of Americans have some form of gum disease. Regular, thorough cleanings are the first line of defense in preventing gum disease. They are also the foundation for good oral health.
We design a soft-tissue management program for our patients with gum disease. Our Pro-Dentec Soft Tissue Management program involves a new method of cleaning patients’ teeth. We use Pro-Dentec for gum and soft-tissue care because it combines ultrasonic cleaning with antimicrobials, disinfectants and desensitizing solutions for better patient safety and comfort.
It has many advantages over the older cleaning methods that use heavy vibration, leaving teeth feeling sensitive, gums sore and mouths numb. It does not dig into your tooth structure. But it still provides a thorough and gentle deep cleansing of the tooth surfaces.Back to the top
Mild to Moderate Gum Disease Treatment
Scaling and root planning are the initial treatments for mild to moderate gum disease. Scaling, the first step, is removing tartar from your teeth. The procedure is performed using an ultrasonic scaler to gently strip deposits from your teeth and roots using ultrasonic waves. Next we’ll carefully plane the root surfaces to avoid future tartar buildup. Smooth root surfaces let your gums regenerate without irritation. The gum tissue shrinks and tightens around the teeth, since the irritant has either been reduced or eliminated.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Alidadi uses an ezLase soft tissue laser to painlessly remove infected tissue and inflammatory debris from inside your gums. The laser doubles as a disinfectant since it also kills all bacteria on your gums. Additionally, it seals your nerve endings and promotes healthy gum regeneration.Back to the top

ARESTIN® Antibiotic Therapy
Bacteria cause gum disease. ARESTIN® is an antibiotic that helps kill the bacteria at the root of the problem. Dr. Alidadi places ARESTIN in infected gum pockets below your gumline.
Because it is placed right where you need it, this makes ARESTIN different from an antibiotic you just take as a pill. ARESTIN also contains microspheres—tiny, bead-like particles—that are not visible to the eye. These microspheres release the antibiotic over time, killing bacteria so your gums can heal better.
