Dr. Gilberto Tostado on Non-surgical Gum Disease Treatment Read Transcript

A considerable part of caring for your smile is looking after your gums. If your gums are unhealthy, non-surgical gum disease treatment is a possible option for you. You should call Cosmetic Dental Associates of San Antonio, TX about your oral health concerns if your gums:

  • Bleed when you brush or floss
  • Are tender or discolored
  • Are the source of your chronic bad breath (halitosis)

Dr. John Moore is a prestigious San Antonio, TX dentist with more than three decades of experience. You can trust him to skillfully treat your gum disease and compassionately care for you. We are firm believers in pain-free dentistry, so if you suffer from dental anxiety, we are happy to accommodate you with longer appointment times and a private treatment room. Call us at 210-951-4444.

Modern Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Cosmetic Dental Associates and Dr. Moore are committed to bringing our patients the latest technology and techniques in dentistry. To treat your gum disease, Dr. John Moore will use a special laser that will eliminate the infected gum tissue around the roots of your teeth without harming the healthy tissue. By using a laser, Dr. John Moore ensures you will experience minimal discomfort during treatment and that your gums will recover faster.

Then, he’ll smooth the roots of your teeth so your gums will be encouraged to reattach and close up any pockets where infection can thrive. This process is known as scaling and root planing. If your infection is particularly severe, we can treat your gums with Arestin®. Arestin is a long-lasting antibiotic that will continue fighting against bacteria long after you leave our office.

Tooth loss – avoid it by addressing your gum disease as quickly as possible. Schedule your appointment with our San Antonio, TX dentist Dr. John Moore and Dr. Gilberto Tostado by calling 210-951-4444 or using our online form. Gum disease can often go undetected until it reaches an advanced stage, so the best way to protect yourself is by maintaining regular dental cleanings and dental exams.

Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. has been voted into America’s Top Dentists in Cosmetic Dentistry. He has been recognized for outstanding achievement by the Southwest Society of Prosthodontists, The University of Texas Health Science Center, and Mexican Academy of Prosthodontics.
