Gum Therapy

Home » Garden Valley Services » Gum Therapy

Gum disease (also known as periodontitis and pyorrhea) is an inflammatory condition that affects the supporting and surrounding soft tissues of the tooth, eventually affecting the jawbone itself in the disease’s most advanced stages.


The most common precursor to periodontal disease is gingivitis, a bacterial inflammation of the gum tissue. The gums become infected with bacteria when the toxins in plaque begin to irritate and inflame the gum tissues. Once this bacterial infection establishes a colony in the gum pockets between the teeth, it becomes considerably more difficult to remove and treat.


Gum disease can develop slowly and without symptoms, but if it’s left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems. Fortunately, we have an assortment of items that can help you maintain healthy gums and beautiful teeth.


Warning Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:


  • When teeth and gums are brushed and flossed, they bleed.
  • Loose or wobbly teeth
  • Teeth suddenly look longer
  • Had previous gum problems


Treating Gum Disease


Methods of periodontal treatment vary on the nature and severity of the disease. Garden Valley Team and Dr. Antolin will assess the presence of periodontal disease and prescribe the most effective gum therapy and treatment.

Excellent experience with amazing results and truly wonderful staff all around! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted and the staff make you feel welcome and even calm the nerves. I am always so nervous when visiting dentists and the staff take the time to also explain what you are in for. I went in for a teeth whitening, something I have been so nervous about and Dr. Rhea Antolin is so calming and reassuring about the process. I could not believe how white my teeth were after one session so I decided to come back for another. You will not be disappointed with your results and the entire experience will be smooth and worth it!
