Treatment Options

If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease, there are a variety of treatment options depending on the details of your situation and the severity of the problem. We always start with the least invasive options, which are non-surgical. However, in more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.

Non-Surgical Treatment

The first line of defense against gum disease is a unique type of cleaning called “scaling and root planing.” In this procedure, an ultrasonic cleaning device is used to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth where regular cleaning devices can’t reach: under the gum line, on the tooth, and around the root. Then, the rough surface of the tooth and the root are smoothed out (planed). This provides a healthy, clean surface that makes it easier for the gum tissue to reattach to the tooth.

If you address your gum disease before it becomes severe, scaling and root planing may be the only treatment you need. However, as with any dental procedure, after-care is vital. In order to keep your teeth in good shape and resist future occurrences of gum disease, you must brush and floss daily, eat a healthy diet, avoid tobacco use, and have regular dental checkups. Even after a successful scaling and root planing, if you don’t attend to your teeth properly, it’s quite likely that you’ll develop gum disease again.

Perio Protect

Perio Protect is a doctor-prescribed and patient-applied method to treat chronic gum disease. When you receive your custom Perio Trays, Dr. Aaron will show you how to place a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray. You wear it for just minutes each day. Dr. Shiri will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency vary for each patient.

The trays are designed with a patented seal to place and hold medication where it is most effective — at the site of an infection deep below the gum line. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently and thoroughly cleanses the periodontal pockets, combatting bacteria, whitening your teeth, and freshening your breath.

For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent complement to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.

While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with Daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, Dr. Aaron will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.

The Perio Protect Method is an appealing, minimally-invasive option for advanced periodontitis and early-stage gum disease alike, potentially saving patients from gum surgery.

Surgical Treatment Options

If the tissue or bone surrounding your teeth is too damaged to be repaired with non-surgical treatment, several surgical procedures are available to prevent severe damage and to restore a healthy smile. We will recommend the procedure that is best suited to the condition of your teeth and gums. Following is a list of common types of periodontal surgery:

  • Pocket Depth Reduction
    In a healthy mouth, the teeth are firmly surrounded by gum tissue and securely supported by the bones of the jaw. Periodontal disease damages these tissues and bones, leaving open spaces around the teeth that we call pockets. The larger these pockets are, the easier it is for bacteria to collect inside them, leading to more and more damage over time. Eventually the supportive structure degrades to the point that the tooth either falls out or needs to be removed.During pocket reduction procedures (also known as “flap surgery”), we fold back the gum tissue and remove the bacteria hiding underneath, as well as the hardened plaque and tartar that have collected. We may also remove any tissue that is too damaged to survive. We then sew the healthy tissue back into place. Now that the tooth and root are free of bacteria, plaque, and tartar, and the pockets have been reduced, the gums can reattach to the teeth.
  • Regeneration
    When the bone and tissue supporting the teeth have been lost due to severe gum disease, we can restore these areas with a regeneration procedure. During this process, we begin by folding back the gum tissue and removing the bacteria, plaque and tartar. Depending on your situation, we may then perform a bone graft to stimulate new bone growth, or we may apply a special kind of protein that stimulates tissue growth to repair the areas that have been destroyed by the disease.
  • Soft-Tissue Graft
    A frequent symptom of gum disease is gum recession (also called gingival recession). As the gums recede, more of the roots are revealed. This can make teeth appear longer and can also create sensitivity to hot or cold liquids or food. It also exposes the tooth to increased damage from gum disease, as bacteria, plaque, and tartar attack the surface of the tooth and the root.During a soft-tissue graft, tissue from the top of your mouth or another source is sewed to the gum area, covering the roots and restoring the gum line to its original, healthy location. This procedure can also be performed for cosmetic reasons.

Edit to update: (4/20/2022) My insurance changed, and being that Rose is out of network, I was surprised with a bill after the last time I visited. Called today to begin paying it off, and was treated like garbage by one of their staff. "I want to pay you." -- in response, she belittled me for it taking too long and it not being enough. Do you want money? Or do you want to treat me like garbage first before you allow me to give you money? Her name is Bella, and even if they did take my insurance, she is enough reason to not return. Dr. Arron reached out personally to help resolve the issue. Just check your insurance well before you go--- if you can afford them, she is a fantastic dentist who shares my philosophies on taking care of my teeth. (July 2020) For years, I've been considering getting the mercury amalgam fillings out of several of my teeth. One of the fillings started to 'fail' recently, so it became a high priority for me. I looked for a dentist that would be conscientious of the somewhat dangerous process, and am VERY pleased to have decided on Rose Dental. All of their staff are not only professional, but charismatic and welcoming. Had my procedure today, and it was quick and painless! The preventative measures they had in place made me feel very safe throughout the process. They are knowledgeable about how to properly safeguard and detox from mercury exposure. I'm extremely grateful to have found them, and highly recommend them for anyone looking for a great dentist -- especially if mercury removal is something you're considering.

I’ve put off going to the dentist for years all because I have terrible dentist anxiety due to bad experiences in the past with dentist not being able to get me numb. Let me just tell you!! Dr. Aaron is AMAZING, caring, funny and very knowledgeable in what she does! And…she gets me numb! I have a long way to go before my mouth is where it needs to be but I have no worries or doubts with Dr. Aaron getting me there. You feel like family here! The entire staff are all super nice and very attentive! My whole family will be switching to Dr. Aaron! I am so so thankful I’ve found my forever dentist!! Thank you Rose Dental!!

I chose Rose Dental based on the reviews I read here and I'm so glad I did! One of the best dental experiences of my life! First of all, the office is beautifully designed, the staff welcomes you with big smiles and a tea and coffee service for you. You are taken back to a dental studio that has the most up to date equipment. The dentist, Dr. Zina, is a phenomenal surgeon, and really knows how to place your dental shot for the least pain. Throughout your dental work the staff checks on how you are doing. If you have a child, this would be the best dentist...kind and a caring staff..there is a huge ceiling television screen with fantastic nature scenes to engage a child. Prices are reasonable compared to other dental services. Thank you Dr. Zina, and staff!

Dr. Zina Aaron is a gifted dentist who maintains the highest level of standards and care for her patients. Dr. Aaron uses the latest holistic treatments and materials. She also shares her wisdom in public speaking events, as an expert in holistic dentistry. I truly wish everyone knew about holistic dental care. And they could go to Dr. Zina:) Her staff is consistently warm and professional. Cheryl and Amanda always kept the same sweet tones in their voices,, even when I called for the 100th time with questions and concerns. The staff will even put the estimated treatment plan and ~cost in writing. This means Dr. Zina Aaron stands by her patients and her work. This is rare, I’ve found. I’m so grateful to Dr. Zina Aaron at Rose Dental. And Rose Dental is even starting to have 7:00 a.m. appointments soon!

Finding Rose Dental was a true blessing for me. I was sick for years with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. I went to several dentist over the years explaing that my tooth which had two different root canals, just didn't feel right. They all took x-rays and assured me there was nothing wrong with the tooth. With Dr Aaron's help, she referred me to Dr. Daniel Brunner, Oral Surgeon with East Cobb Oral Surgery. Dr Bruner did a CT scan and found two infected root canals and a cavitation. After he completed the oral surgery and removed the root canal teeth and cleaned out the cavitation, he referred me back to Dr Aaron for the bridge work. She did an amazing job on the bridge work. The bite is perfect and no one can tell I had any work done. She makes you feel so comfortable with the process and checked with me afterwards to make sure I was doing well. My Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia is gone. I'm well for the first time in over 15 years, thanks to Dr. Aaron and Dr Bruner. They listened to me and never discounted what I felt. I can never repay them for giving me back my life.

Rose Dental is the most awesome dentist's office ever! They have relaxing scenes and music playing on the screen above your head while you're in the chair, and they even have pink walls. I love those pink walls... The whole experience is just the best. There are fascinating cutting-edge dental treatment videos playing in the lobby; so educational! I knew that mercury is bad, and I'm proud to say that Dr. Aaron removed the last of it from my mouth, but I had no idea how bad root canals are for overall health. Go figure! The very best of all for me, though, was a personal recommendation that Dr. Aaron gave me to get a DNA-based nutritional profile from MaxGen Labs. That literally changed my life! I found out that I have a genetic defect that causes my body not to produce choline, an inexpensive vitamin supplement, and I had been plagued with allergies, low immune function, fatigue, chemical sensitivities, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity for most of my life. I couldn't even work a full-time job, and I was living with my mom at 44 years old. Now, at 45, I have my own place, I can handle 12-hour shifts, I can eat dairy and cornstarch again, and I'm not afraid of my phone (even though I do prudently keep it on airplane mode most of the time 😉 Thank you SO much, Dr. Aaron! You make such a difference in people's lives!!

I’ve never had such a great experience at a dentist office. The entire staff was thoughtful and kind and made me feel comfortable as soon as I walked in. I’ve always been so nervous about dental work, even for cleanings, and they helped me through it. While getting cavities filled, Dr Aaron made sure I was okay throughout the entire procedure and kept me well informed before and after. I’m so happy to have found this office. I could never go anywhere else now.
