Periodontal Therapy

Dentists in Paso Robles

We view periodontal (gum) health as the foundation of a house—if you start building on a weak foundation, you’re going to end up with a weak structure. With that in mind, we feel your dental health begins with good, sound periodontal health.

Removing bacteria from the mouth is very important and can prevent the progression of periodontal gum disease. During a typical checkup, our skilled dental hygienists will clean your teeth with tools to comfortably remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth above and below the gum line.

Receive comforting treatment with our soft tissue laser.

Laser dentists in Paso Robles, Dr. Marcum incorporated the soft tissue laser into periodontal therapy because of its precision and consistent outcomes.

We’ll make sure you’re comfortable throughout the entire procedure, either with a topical analgesic or an injection which blocks sensation to the area.

Cleanings can be done in one to four appointments, and your mouth and gums will feel and look better almost immediately!

What are common signs of gum disease?

If your gums:

  • look red and puffy
  • bleed when you brush or floss
  • regularly have bad breath

Periodontal therapy may be the best option for you.

If left untreated, gum disease can lead to bone and tooth loss.

We protect more than just your smile.

Uncontrolled bacterial growth in the mouth can negatively impact your overall health. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream and harm vital organs in your body, increasing your chances of:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney problems
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
