Treatment for Periodontitis

At Cosmetic Dentistry of Hayward, we provide the most minimally invasive methods to effectively and comfortably treat periodontitis. Our office is uniquely equipped with advanced laser technology for successful gum disease treatment. These lasers offer countless advantages over conventional methods and are designed to restore the delicate soft tissues of the mouth in the most efficient ways. Our laser treatments for periodontitis can clean deep gum pockets from disease-causing bacteria while also promoting the reattachment of bone and connective tissue. Dr. Patel is proud to offer such high-tech tools to help patients avoid tooth loss or other serious complications from gum disease.

Deep Cleaning, Scaling and Root Planing

Our Hayward practice also offers scaling and root planing, or deep cleaning. This can be one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe. It is also recommended as a preventive measure for patients who are at a greater risk for gum disease. Our office uses a combination of ultrasonic scalers and traditional hand scalers for a meticulous deep cleaning of your teeth and gums. An ultrasonic scaler removes plaque and calculus beneath the gum line and around the tooth root using a powerful yet gentle approach. The final step of a deep cleaning procedure is to smooth out the rough surfaces of the tooth and tooth root so that your gum tissues can successfully reattach.
