Gum Disease Treatment in Waukee, IA

When the gums are exposed to tartar, plaque and bacteria, it will eventually result in gum disease – or periodontitis. Some of the symptoms of this condition include swelling and bleeding during oral hygiene practices like brushing or flossing. Eventually, if left unchecked, the gums will pull away from the teeth, creating periodontal pockets. If the spread of plaque, tartar, and bacteria gets to the jawbone and soft tissue, it can result in tooth loss.

Early detection and treatment of periodontitis are important to stop its spread. Therefore, it is important to watch for signs of gum disease. Paying regular visits to a dentist can help catch and treat this condition. Lush Family Dental in Waukee offers periodontal services such as scaling and root planing, gingivectomy, root surface debridement, laser treatment, ridge augmentation and bone grafting.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing can treat and reverse the early stages of gum disease. Scaling involves thoroughly cleaning the area below the gum, followed by root planing which is the smoothing out of the root surfaces to prevent future buildups.


This procedure involves the removal of a small portion of gum from around the teeth so that infected tissue can be removed.

Root Surface Debridement

This is the removal of tartar, plaque and other debris from the root surface underneath the gum line.

Laser Treatment

In this treatment, we use a laser to reach and remove inflamed or infected gum tissues from the root of a tooth.

Ridge Augmentation and Bone Grafting

Ridge augmentation is the process of rebuilding the bone of the jawbone to enable it to support an implant. Bone grafting is the placement of bone graft material to encourage bone growth.
