Embarking on a journey toward optimal oral health means navigating through various challenges and gum disease, unfortunately, is one of the most common hurdles many face. Gum disease starts innocently enough, with the formation of plaque. As it progresses, your gums become red, tender and prone to bleeding — classic signs of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. If left untreated, it can evolve into periodontitis, a more formidable adversary capable of causing tooth loss and other serious complications.

At Tippets Dentistry, we understand the importance of early detection and intervention in treating gum disease. Our experienced team of dental professionals offers comprehensive treatment options tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

For more advanced cases of gum disease, we may recommend additional treatments such as antibiotic therapy, laser therapy or surgical intervention to restore gum health and preserve the integrity of the teeth and surrounding tissues.

In addition to in-office treatments, we emphasize the importance of proper oral hygiene at home to maintain the results of gum disease treatment. This includes brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing regularly and using antimicrobial mouth rinses as directed by our dental team.

By taking a proactive approach with gum disease treatment in Johnstown and Wellington, Colorado, we can help our patients achieve healthier gums, improved oral function and a brighter smile for years to come.
