At Belmar Smiles, we believe that your gums and soft tissues play an important role in supporting your teeth and keeping your smile healthy. To ensure your gums stay strong, we provide regular periodontal maintenance, which includes cleaning your teeth, reviewing your dental hygiene habits, and consistently examining your smile for signs of periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, causes a painful infection of the gums that can eventually lead to gum loss and tooth loss. We offer multiple treatments for gum disease in Lakewood, Colorado, based on the severity of your case. Improved dental hygiene, medication, and lifestyle changes can all be effective in keeping gum disease at bay. Deep cleaning methods, such as scaling and root planing, are also used for more advanced cases. Scaling and root planing are designed to remove infected gum tissue and keep your teeth clean.

You may have gum disease if you are experiencing such signs and symptoms as bleeding gums, tender gums, a receding gum line, loose teeth, or persistent bad breath. For fast, effective treatment, please contact our dentist, Dr. Christina Sehy VerSchave, today to schedule a time to come and meet with us. We look forward to treating all aspects of your dental health.
