Periodontal Therapy

Effective general dental treatment for periodontal disease can save your teeth and protect your overall health. At Marietta Smiles, we take gum disease seriously. We help patients realize that in order for their teeth to last a lifetime, they must also take care of the structures that support them: the gums and surrounding bone. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can destroy these supporting tissues if it is not treated properly. Therefore, our dental professionals are always diligent to monitor your gum health and detect its earliest signs.

Treatment for Periodontitis

If gum disease is allowed to advance, periodontitis can result. At this stage, the gums have likely developed deep pockets. You may notice that your gums are red, swollen, bleed easily and are receding. Our Marietta practice offers a variety of periodontitis treatment methods, depending on the severity of your gum disease. Treatment can range from a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) or laser gum therapies to more advanced surgical treatments in severe cases. Regardless of what type of treatment you need, you can trust that our dental professionals are equipped to restore your smile to optimal health. We help patients avoid tooth loss whenever possible. However, if you need tooth replacement, we proudly offer the highest standard of care in dental implants.

Gum Infection Therapy

The best way to prevent a gum infection is to practice proper brushing and flossing habits at home to eradicate bacteria and plaque buildup. However, it is important to know that hardened plaque can only be removed with a professional dental cleaning. We are confident that we have the capability to treat your gum infection, but we prefer to help patients avoid dental complications in the first place. We can also explain your individual risk factors for gum disease, such as those that involve specific dietary habits, smoking or family history.

I have not been to a dentist in over 13+ years. They made me feel at home & really helped me stay clam during my process. I was in need of a "deep clean" and I can tell you it was just performed yesterday and today I feel NOTHING.. Not sore or bleeding gums. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

I have been visiting the staff at Marietta Smiles for nearly 2 years and I have experience great service from them all. They are always so friendly and accommodating to my needs. I didn't feel ashamed about my initial visit with them (it had been nearly 10 years since my last dentist appt and my teeth were in bad shape) and they completely made me feel relaxed. They completely transformed my smile and improved the health of my teeth and gums. I experience little to pain when getting exams and cleaning. They have definitely taken the fear out of going to an appt, if anything I look forward to going! Thank you again to Dr. Nunez and the lovely staff at Marietta Smiles.

The front desk people can make or break your experience with a dentist. The front desk people here are awesome. They take care of everything and don't mind if you change an appt.

AMAZING The experience started when I called to see if they could help me with an "emergency". Liz was empathetic and listened to me about what was going on. She was able to fit me in to be seen. Once I got there, I was greeted by Shannon who made sure I did not have any questions prior to being seen (definitely a better experience when the patient doesn't feel like they are bothering the front desk ...) What a great start to an unfortunate reason for being seen. I did not even have to wait ... I arrived early to fill out the paperwork and I was barely done and they called my name. Laura and Dr Singh were a pleasure. They took their time to explain everything to me, often repeating the same information to make sure I understood my options. They never once "forced a recommendation" for what to do. They let me make the choice (BIG Fan of this). At every step of the process, of the root canal (normally an awful thing to face), they made sure I was informed and comfortable. Often asking if I had any pain as they were doing the work. As much as this may sound crazy, I actually enjoyed myself. All of the staff was accommodating, funny, professional and truly cared about the patient and what they do. I have so many positive things to say about this practice. I will recommend Dr Singh and his staff to anyone who will listen.
