Periodontal Disease Treatment

Get Gum Disease Treatment in Indianapolis

gum disease treatment in Indianapolis and FishersGum disease, or periodontal disease, is a very common problem that can have a serious negative impact on a patient’s oral health. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause receding gums and adult tooth loss. In very serious cases, gum disease could potentially lead to issues that can affect a patient’s whole health including Alzheimer’s, heart disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes, pregnancy issues, and infertility.

At Dental Care Today in Fishers (just east of Carmel), we take important steps in periodontal disease prevention and treatment. Our treatment for periodontal disease is non-surgical and individually focused on each patient. We use OralDNA screenings to test for periodontal disease and figure out what steps need to be taken in each patient’s healing process. We will work with you to personally combat periodontal disease and prevent it with lifestyle and nutritional changes.

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, it could be a sign that you may require periodontal disease treatment:

  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Teeth that appear longer because gums are receding
  • Gums that are swollen or sensitive to the touch.
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Mouth pain
  • Pus between your teeth and gums

OralDNA Gum Disease Testing

Gum disease can be detected using OralDNA.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean that you have periodontal disease, but if you are experiencing them, you may want to take advantage of our OralDNA screenings and begin periodontal disease treatment. OralDNA is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence and severity of gum disease. To conduct this test we use a saliva sample that is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. We will work with you to make sure that you are getting the best possible periodontal disease care.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!
