Periodontal Services in Iowa City

We Take Special Care of Your Gums

Gingivitis and periodontitis are gum tissue diseases that are first recognized when bleeding occurs during routine brushing and flossing. When a disease is found in your gum tissue, it's important to treat the infection quickly. If not, your periodontium, which is made up of the bone and gum tissue that supports the teeth, can become damaged, which can result in bone loss and potentially tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to cardiovascular problems including strokes and heart attacks as well as diabetes and lung conditions. Proper treatment, like scaling and root planing, is often the treatment of choice at Eastman Dental Care.

If your gums are constantly bleeding, let our Iowa City dentist take care of it. Schedule your visit at (319) 670-2030!

Scaling & Root Planing Treatments

As soon as we determine that you are suffering from a gum disease, our dental hygienist will provide you with scaling and root planing treatments to help restore your oral health. By cleaning the teeth and gum tissues, the infection usually clears up quickly. You'll also receive education on proper home care so that you can prevent health issues from reoccurring.

Dentin Hypersensitivity

Teeth can become very sensitive to hot or cold air, liquids, sweets, or sometimes, they are just sensitive on their own. These painful areas can extend into the gums and beyond.

Dentinal hypersensitivity, which is found in almost 60% of people, can be caused by the following:

  • Overbrushing
  • An acidic diet
  • Acidic mouth conditions
  • Lack of proper saliva

Fortunately, we now have effective treatments. From education to polishing pastes to in-home products, and customized trays, our Iowa City dental office has got it all. If you wish to learn more about the different ways to reduce teeth sensitivity, reach out to Eastman Dental Care today!

Call us at (319) 670-2030 to schedule an appointment or to request a free consultation.
