Gum Disease

For minimally invasive procedures to promote healthy gums and with locations in Crestview, Pensacola, and Santa Rosa Beach, Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics helps individuals who are concerned about their overall periodontal health.

What Is Gum Disease?

Our gums are a key to our wellbeing because they keep our teeth strongly rooted and empower our ability to function and to preserve our facial structure for optimal personal appearance. As a result, it is vital to care for them as are brushing and flossing of your teeth. Various gum treatments can also help to restore and replenish your gums’ natural health and protective abilities. Surgical and nonsurgical efforts may keep the area in, around, and below your gum line healthy.

At Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics, we offer advanced periodontal therapy to restore your gums to their full health. We are certified and trained to treat periodontal and gum disease, in addition to fighting gum disease in its earliest stages. Our gentle gum disease therapy includes detoxifying the root surface which helps reduce the bacterial toxins deep down at the source inside your gums.

Benefits of Gum Treatment

By reducing the amount of toxins and bacteria levels using an ultrasonic laser, we are able to help your immune system control infections associated with gum disease. Gum treatments give you the many benefits of a healthy smile and a reduced risk of heart disease.

What Is the Procedure for Gum Disease Treatment?

The type of gum treatment you will undergo can be either surgical or nonsurgical. These can include advanced procedures such as scaling and root planning, which are deep cleaning procedures used to remove hardened plaque and tartar away from and under the gum line. Surgeries can include tissue and bone grafts that are used together with either your existing bone and tissue or synthetic forms to help reconstruct areas where advanced gum disease has left craters and pits, forming a breeding ground for bacteria.

Preparing for Gum Disease Treatment

There is no specific preparation needed before you come to our office for your gum treatment. Your mouth will be numbed with a local anesthetic, so discomfort will be minimal.

Recovery from Gum Disease Treatment

Your gums may be swollen or sore after your treatment; however, your mouth will feel decidedly healthier. You may also be given an antibiotic or antimicrobial mouthwash to help prevent the buildup of bacteria, plaque, and gingivitis.

How Much Does Gum Disease Treatment Cost?

The cost of gum treatment depends on the extent of the issue and the extent of treatment necessary to resolve it. In some cases, your dental insurance may cover your gum treatment. Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics offers convenient financing options through CareCredit® and OrthoBanc® to help make dental care more affordable for you and your family.

Periodontal Treatment

If you are experiencing pain in and along the gum line or if you have been told that you have a buildup of tartar, plaque, calculus, or gingivitis, ultimately periodontal treatment may be the right solution.


Gingivitis is a very dangerous extension of dental pathology, and it has been shown to lead to the early onset of heart disease. Preventing heart disease may ultimately start with preventing gingivitis. If you are concerned about gingivitis, please contact us now to set up your consultation.
