The Gum Disease Epidemic is Real
Gum disease affects nearly half of all the adults in the United States. That’s an incredible and almost unbelievable statistic– but it’s true. Perhaps more amazing is the fact that the vast majority of people who have gum disease either haven’t been diagnosed or they’re not actively seeking treatment.
It’s unfortunate, but in years past, painful and invasive surgery was the only treatment for gum disease. Times have changed. At Neish Dentistry, we offer the latest in high-tech and minimally invasive gum disease treatments.
Why is treating gum disease so important? Untreated gum disease may lead to…
- Severe infections
- Tooth loss
- Damage to otherwise healthy tissue in your jaw
- Increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and even Alzheimer’s disease

Dental Exams & Routine Cleanings
At your yearly dental exams, you’ll receive a gum disease evaluation. This will not only check for signs of gum disease, but will assess your future risk of gum disease as well.
By monitoring the health of your gums closely, we’re able to help many of our patients avoid gum disease entirely. And we’re able to catch gum disease early when it does occur. In addition, routine cleanings help remove built up plaque and tartar that can contribute to gum disease.
Our proactive approach allows us to use minimally-invasive and high-tech treatments to stop gum disease in its tracks.
If you’ve suffered from gum disease in the past, our periodontal maintenance services can help reduce your chances of a recurrence.
Our periodontal maintenance services include thorough cleaning of the teeth and root surfaces and help improve gum health, freshen breath, and reduce the risk of advanced gum disease.
Deep cleanings are a very effective way to treat gum disease. A deep cleaning removes plaque and tartar above the gumline. This helps:
- Reverse gum disease
- Prevent bone loss due to infection
- Maintain the health of your natural teeth
When gum disease has reached more advanced stages, non-surgical methods may no longer be an option. Thankfully lasers make periodontal surgery more effective and less invasive.
With laser-assisted periodontal surgery, we can:
- Detoxify gum tissue where bacteria can hide
- Regenerate supporting bone that has been lost
- Reduce discomfort and speed up your recovery

Frequently Asked Questions
“What happens if I don’t treat my gum disease?”
A huge variety of infections can enter the body through the gums. Research shows these infections may eventually lead to an increased risk of serious complications, including permanent tooth and bone loss. In addition untreated gum disease can increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and even diabetes.
“What are warning signs for gum disease?”
The most common signs and symptoms of gum disease include:
- Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- Gums that are tender or painful, especially when brushing or flossing
- Chronic bad breath
- Receding gums
“Is gum disease permanent?”
No! While the risk of recurrence will always be present, with proper treatment and modifications to your home dental care routine, gum disease is totally manageable.
“How long does it take to recover from gum disease treatments?”
The difference between old-fashioned surgical gum disease treatments and our modern approach is like night and day. Many of the gum disease treatments at our Beaverton dentist office take just an hour or two to complete and you’ll be feeling like yourself almost right away. Many of our patients need just a ibuprofen or other OTC pain reliever– or even no pain medication at all.
