Don’t Become a Victim of the Gum Disease Epidemic

As many as 47% of Americans suffer from gum disease!

Even worse, many people with gum disease don’t know it or avoid going to the dentist to have it treated. Why? Because for years, the only treatments available were painful surgical procedures.

Times have changed. Today at Green Dentistry, I love telling my patients about the minimally-invasive, non-surgical, and high-tech treatments available to them. If you’re suffering from inflamed or bleeding gums or have been told you have gum disease (also known as periodontitis periodontal disease), don’t put off treatment any longer.

My high-tech and holistic approach to treating gum disease produces long-lasting results, improves your whole body health, and restores your beautiful smile!

Call (415) 433-0119 to schedule your gum disease consultation. I’m here to help!

A Modern, Minimally-Invasive Approach to Treating Gum Disease & Gum Recession

Traditional Treatments Treatments at Green Dentistry

Dr. Patel and her team rely on minimally-invasive and needle-free treatments in a calming, relaxing atmosphere. You’ll look and feel better fast!
Long Healing Times? Yes. Many surgical gum disease treatments require days or even weeks to heal. No! Some treatments may make your gums feel tender for a day or so, but you’ll be feeling like yourself again in no time.
Unpredictable Results? Yes. Surgery carries the risk of infection and may not even completely cure periodontal disease. No! Our high tech treatments are designed to target diseased gum tissue and minimize the risks of infection and complications.
Allow Your Body to Heal Naturally? There is nothing natural about invasive surgery. Yes! Your body is designed to be able to heal itself. The treatments we offer are thoughtfully chosen and designed with this

Gum Disease & Recession Treatment Options Available at Green Dentistry

Laser Dentistry

Lasers are an incredible tool for treating gum disease. Unlike surgery, dental lasers are precise and minimally-invasive. There’s hardly any bleeding and recovery times are measured in days, not weeks.

Laser treatments for gum disease:

  • Specifically target diseased gum tissue
  • Promote improved blood flow and growth of healthy gum tissue
  • Are fast, require minimal anesthetic, and you’ll see results in just one treatment

Perio Protect

The earlier we detect gum disease, the easier it is to treat. Perio Protect is a completely non-invasive and painless gum disease treatment.

Best of all? Perio Protect is an at-home treatment and it even whitens your teeth!

We’ll use 3D imaging technology to create a tray that is custom fit for your mouth. Each day you’ll fill the trays with a hydrogen peroxide gel and leave it in your mouth for about an hour. Within a few weeks, your teeth will be whiter and your gums will be healthier!

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Gum disease can lead to gum recession. When infection spreads above the gumline it can cause your gums to shrink, exposing more of your tooth structure. Your teeth might be more sensitive and your gums will bleed more easily.

Gum recession is reversible!

Pinhole gum rejuvenation therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that requires no scalpel and no stitches! Many patients only need some aspirin or ibuprofen after the treatment and the results are immediate.

“The staff and doctors are super friendly! Dr. Patel was kind and walked me through every concern I had for my appointment. I love that they offer so many different services like teeth whitening, deep cleaning, and even a dental spa!”

– Danika P.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Gum Disease?
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that infect and cause inflammation in gum tissue. Many of our patients are surprised to learn they have gum problems despite brushing and flossing regularly. While it may be caused by poor brushing habits, this is not always the case. The natural pH and bacterial flora in your mouth, as well as your genetics can cause you to get gum disease no matter how well you brush and floss.

What Are the Most Common Gum Disease Symptoms?

If you receive frequent dental exams, it’s possible to prevent periodontal disease entirely or identify (and cure) it before any symptoms are present. Keep an eye out for these symptoms:

  • Red and swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Dry mouth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Chronic bad breath

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, speak with your dentist right away!

What Happens if I Don’t Get Treated?
Gum disease is not only painful it can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. Diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic health problems can be caused or worsened by poor oral health, including untreated gum disease.
