Get your gums checked and eliminate any signs of gum diseases that you may have such as gingivitis and infection.

Our sedation dentistry ensures you’ll feel comfortable during your visit for “Gum Disease Treatment” by Dr. Wei – General Dentist in Manhattan.

How Gum Disease Treatment Works:

During your dental check-up Dr. Wei will examine your teeth and gums for signs of disease. If you show signs of gingivitis or an advanced case of gum disease, Dr. Wei will recommend immediate periodontal therapy. Periodontal disease is fairly common and is usually simple to fix.

  • This gum disease treatment involves removing calculus (a hardened plaque), from below the gum line.
  • Then Dr. Wei will smooth toothroots in a procedure called “scaling” to reduce areas prone to plaque buildup. We can irrigate pockets of infection to clean them if needed. Sometimes “Arestin” (antibiotic) is applied into the gum pocket to kill stubborn harmful bacterial infection.
  • If gum disease has advanced to the point that surgery is required, Dr. Wei can perform laser gum surgery procedures in our office. Otherwise, he will refer you to a trusted colleague for specialized periodontal care.
