Periodontal Therapy – Colorado Springs
Optimizing Your Oral Health in Colorado Springs & Beyond
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults in the United States, and recent studies have linked gum disease to serious systemic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's. Pregnant women are more likely to suffer from gum disease, which can affect their pregnancies. Research has shown gum disease may lead to premature births and low birth weights. At our Colorado Springs dental office, we use periodontal therapy to take a proactive approach to gum disease.

Our Periodontal Treatments
At his Colorado Springs dental practice, Dr. Solich offers progressive, non-surgical periodontal therapies, including:
- Ultrasonic scaling to remove calculus from below the gum line
- Root planing to smooth tooth root surfaces
- Pinhole Surgical Technique
- Antibiotic therapy to fight infection
- Laser treatment to remove diseased tissue
Colorado Springs patients diagnosed with gum disease should expect to attend regular exams and cleanings more often. Keeping gum disease in check is vital to ensuring your continued good dental and overall health. In cases of advanced periodontitis, which severely affects gum tissues, tooth structures, and jawbone, Dr. Solich may refer patients to a periodontal specialist.
When dealing with periodontal disease, consistent and ongoing care is a must to ensure that bacteria doesn’t have the chance to “rally” and cause further harm. To help patients take care of themselves at home, we can have them wear something called Perio Protect. It is simply a custom-made mouth tray that places medicine directly on the gums where any infection is present. A patient only has to wear it for minutes a day, and it can quickly take care of stubborn bacteria to protect the long-term health of the smile.
