At Healthy Smiles Family Dental in Salem, we help our patients win the fight against periodontal disease. Our holistic approach emphasizes prevention and minimally invasive gum disease treatment options designed with your comfort in mind.

Gum disease treatments

Perio Protect
Perio Protect is a high-tech and proven treatment used to fight gum disease from the comfort of your own home! We’ll create a custom set of Perio Protect trays designed to sit comfortably against your gumline. You’ll fill these trays with a specially formulated peroxide gel and wear them as instructed by your dentist. Most patients see an improvement in gum disease symptoms within 2 weeks!

Deep Cleanings
While “regular” cleanings are designed to clean the surfaces of the teeth, a deep cleaning targets bacteria above the gumline. Using specialized tools, our dentists gently remove bacterial build-up, allowing your gums to heal naturally. A deep cleaning is both an effective way to prevent gum disease and helps your body recover if gum disease is detected.
