Our goal at Dong Won Kim Family Dental Care is to provide you with the highest level of dental care to keep your entire smile in good health. Some people may think that their teeth are the most important part of their mouth, but the gum tissues are also an integral component of your smile and your oral health. Keeping your gums healthy is essential to maintaining good overall health. If your gums become infected and diseased by a condition called periodontal disease (gum disease), it can result in tooth loss, bone loss, and gum tissue loss. In order to prevent these serious effects, and to return your smile to good health, we provide gum treatment in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
Your specific type of periodontal treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and your personal dental needs. Our gentle dentists are skilled in scaling and root planing, which are deep cleaning treatments often recommended to treat periodontal disease and begin restoring the health of your smile. If your condition is more severe or does not respond to treatment, we may refer you to a periodontist (a dentist who specializes in periodontal treatment). If your gums are swollen, red, tender, or bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. We encourage you to contact our dental office soon to learn more about gum treatment and to schedule your visit with Dr. Kim, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Jun. We are dedicated to keeping your smile as healthy as we can!
