Modern laser therapies that can eradicate gum infection

If infected gums are leaving you with bad breath or your gums are starting to recede, these are signs you may need gum disease treatment as soon as possible. Dr. Patrick Moriarty has been treating patients for over 38 years and has extensive experience treating those with gum disease. If you have moderate to severe gum disease, we have modern laser therapies available and more aggressive treatments that can eradicate the infection fast.

Risk of untreated gum disease

Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, is a progressive disease that releases bacteria and toxins into the bloodstream. When an infection starts to spread beyond the mouth, it can trigger systemic conditions or cause various types of health problems. In fact, several studies suggest a link between gum disease and:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Other types of cancer

Stages of gum disease

Gum disease treatment options

Dr. Moriarty performs a number of procedures to treat the infection of the gums and restore your oral health. Some are more aggressive than others so we will determine what type of treatment you need during your consultation. Treatment options include:

  • Scaling and root planing therapy
  • Gingivectomy
  • Osseous surgery

We also perform periodontal maintenance for up to a year or more after gum disease treatment to ensure the gums stay clear of infection. This involves deep cleaning the teeth and checking the heath of your gums every few months instead of just twice a year.
