Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease is a Real Problem. Your Riley Dental Group Dentist Offers Hope!

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects about to 80 percent of the population. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to overall health risks, including heart disease and stroke. The condition often goes undiagnosed since the most common symptoms, swelling and bleeding gums, don’t cause major problems or pain.

Your dentist at Riley Dental Group will conduct a comprehensive exam, and then recommend the best course gum disease treatment, if needed. Our hygiene program includes:

  • Charting and Diagnostic Services
  • Arestin Antibiotic Treatment
  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Bone Grafts

If treated in the early stage, gum disease can be reversed before it causes significant damage. Learn more about gum disease and periodontal therapy here.

We have three general dentists and an orthodontist on staff, as well as many dedicated assistants and hygienists to make your experience rewarding. Riley Dental Group serves patients from Granada Hills, Northridge, and Valencia.
