Bad breath as well as bleeding, red, and swollen gums are signs that a mouth is unhealthy. The dentists with Dental Partners of Boston can help manage and reverse periodontal disease.
As part of the gum therapy and periodontal treatments offered by Dental Partners of Boston, patients can benefit from the FDA-approved LANAP laser treatment. This effective procedure allows for the treatment of advanced periodontal disease without the need for surgery. Additionally, long term sensitivity is minimized and there is a shorter recovery time compared to other gum therapy treatment options.
If you have noticed symptoms of periodontal disease, or if a dentist has told you that you have it, you're probably wondering what you can do to save your teeth and ensure your best oral health. Depending on the severity of the infection, many people are now eligible for a minimally invasive treatment called LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), which uses a safe and FDA-approved laser and doesn't require incisions or sutures like traditional periodontal surgery. Wondering if LANAP is right for you? Read on to find out.
Your gums should form a tight seal around your teeth, creating what we call a “collar.” Sometimes, though, you may find that your gums bleed, especially after brushing. There’s a misconception that bleeding gums are a normal part of oral health and that it’s inevitable after cleaning: it’s not. Bleeding gums are actually an indication of disease and something that you’ll want to address as quickly as possible.
At Dental Partners of Boston, we offer ways for patients to replace and repair missing, chipped, or stained teeth. This is accomplished through methods like crowns and caps, veneers, and teeth whitening.

Infected or inflamed tooth pulp can lead to extreme tooth pain. Through endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, the dental team at Dental Partners of Boston can help relieve that pain.

During root canal procedures, we at Dental Partners of Boston use microscope-assisted techniques to improved illumination and reach greater levels of visibility. With the assistance of a dental microscope, we offer improved accuracy in our procedures.

Wisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure most people have to go through at some point in their lives.

The dental team at Dental Partners of Boston explains every step of the wisdom teeth extraction procedure to our patients and answers any questions beforehand.
At Dental Partners of Boston, we want to help you avoid the complications that come from gum recession. Gum recession is when the tissue around your teeth is worn down and drawn back, which results in more of the tooth being exposed. Because of the receding gum line, pockets of space work their way between the teeth and the gums, making it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria that can cause many problems if left untreated. Receding gums also expose the root of the tooth, which is softer than your enamel and susceptible to decay.
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is a problem for many Americans, with almost half of adults estimated to have it in some form. Mild gum disease might not present a significant problem, but it can lead to tooth and bone loss if it advances. Scaling and root planing is a treatment that helps to prevent and treat gum disease. Our dental team helps you to take care of both your teeth and gums to halt the progression of gum disease with scaling and root planing.
