Healthy Gums = A Healthy Smile

Gums need to be healthy and free of infection to hold teeth in place. At every hygiene visit, our Longmont periodontics team will inspect your gums for signs of infection and measure the pocket depths – the space between the gum and teeth.

If there is a gap of 5mm or more, you may need to come in more frequently for hygiene cleanings.

Periodontic Treatment Ensures Healthy Gums

How It Works
Dr. Goldtrap and his team first remove any visible tartar from your teeth. Then, if gums show signs of inflammation or irritation caused by excessive plaque or tartar, an antibiotic can be applied.

On further periodontic visits, Dr. Goldtrap can utilize laser therapy on gums to cure the infection or refer you to a periodontal specialist if gum pockets are still of concern. No matter what your needs may be, you can count on an effective treatment that is based on your ideal health.

Preserve Your Smile
The best way to preserve the health of your gums and smile is to brush and floss every day. Flossing will prolong your gum health, which is linked to the health of your entire body. Flossing will save you dental discomfort in the long run. Taking good care of your teeth and gums is easy and feels great!
