Gum Disease Treatment in Indianapolis

Did you know that you could have early-stage gum disease and not even be aware of it? That’s right – gum disease can lurk silently in your mouth with no apparent symptoms. That’s why twice-yearly dental checkups are so important. If we see signs of gum disease, our Indianapolis gum disease treatment can help:

  • Rid your mouth of bacteria that can put your smile at risk
  • Put your gums back on the road to recovery
  • Prevent your gums from bleeding when you brush or floss
  • Improve your breath and give you more confidence


Don’t risk your valuable smile! Call Isaacs Family Dental today at 317-298-3384 to schedule an exam, which is covered by our dental membership plan. We’re located near the Traders Point shopping center and have convenient early morning and late afternoon appointments available.

Gum Disease Therapy Can Help Your Gums Heal

Every patient of ours naturally wants to have the best, healthiest smile possible. A beautiful smile tells a lot about you; it can convey confidence, success, and a good self-image among other things.

If you’re suffering from gum disease, it may be difficult to smile genuinely. This condition can make your gums red and puffy as well as tender to the touch. Left untreated, gum disease can even cause your teeth to loosen and eventually fall out.

Gum disease therapy at Isaacs Family Dental can change all that, however. We use a process called scaling and root planing, also known as “deep cleaning.” Here’s what we’ll do to get your gums back into shape:

  • We’ll first clean built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria from around and below your gumline using special instruments.
  • Next, we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it more difficult for bacteria to collect there.
  • This procedure may need to be repeated every few months if you’re prone to gum disease.

Don’t put your beautiful smile at risk! Come in soon to find out more about our Indianapolis gum disease treatment. Call 317-298-3384 today to schedule an appointment, or request one online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for best results.

Dr. Isaacs and your hygienist will make sure that your gum disease treatment is as comfortable as possible. Before we begin any work, we’ll use a local anesthetic to completely numb the area we’re working on, and you can request laughing gas if desired. That way you’re assured of a pleasant treatment. In addition, you can ask any questions you want about your treatment, and we’ll answer them fully so you have all the information you need.

In its early stages, gum disease often shows no symptoms at all. That’s why it’s important to visit us regularly for a checkup. As gum disease progresses, your gums may turn red and puffy and become painful. You may also experience bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth. In advanced stages, your teeth can even become loose and eventually fall out.

The exact length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your gum disease. For most patients, treatment will take about an hour. We’ll “deep clean” around and under your gumline to remove pockets of bacteria, then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to prevent further problems. If you have recurring gum disease, we may need to repeat this treatment every few months.
