Treatment for Gum Disease

Green Dental can provide you with treatment for gum disease if you live in Alexandria, VA. Gum disease is progressive, so you should seek general dental treatment to avoid further complications. We treat gum disease at the source, providing you with the right treatments for your needs. The detailed exams used at Green Dental will determine the cause of your gum disease, allowing your dentist to clear the infection.

Green Dental provides deep cleaning treatments, as well as medicinal and oral hygiene recommendations. Gum disease normally arises from inadequate cleaning and flossing, which causes the gums to become infected. A buildup of bacteria around the teeth and gums will cause pain, swelling and bleeding in the gums.

Green Dental will often detect gum disease before you begin to develop symptoms. We also provide scheduling that helps prevent gum disease from taking root. One of the core values of Green Dental is providing preventative dentistry which negates the need for unnecessary treatments.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
