Eliminate Gum Disease at Our Orlando Dental Practice
Gum disease is one of the most common health conditions in the world, and studies show us that it doesn’t just stop at affecting your mouth – it can also have negative effects on your overall wellbeing, particularly your heart. What’s worse is that many patients aren’t even aware of a problem because the symptoms of gum disease tend to be subtle and even unnoticeable in the early stages. Dr. John Russo takes this threat seriously, which is why our team will always provide a periodontal screening as part of your routine check-ups. If we find related damage, several treatment options are available to provide valuable relief and healing.
Are you ready to schedule an appointment for you or a loved one? Do you have any questions about our care? Don’t hesitate to contact our Orlando, FL practice for assistance. We welcome patients and families from Baldwin Park, Winter Park, Conway, Lake Eola Heights, Thornton Park, downtown Orlando, and other nearby areas.
Common signs of periodontal disease include:
- Bleeding gums
- Red or swollen gums
- Excessive bad breath
- Receding gum line (your teeth appear longer over time)
- A change in the way your bite fits together
Dr. Russo’s recommendation for treatment will be personalized to match the severity of your case. In the early stages, we provide you with quality oral healthcare products, instruct you on how to more effectively care for teeth at home, and provide frequent professional cleanings here at our Orlando location to reverse any ill effects. In more severe instances, an in-depth cleaning known as scaling and root planing can get rid of bacteria underneath the gum line and on the root surfaces of your teeth, while soft tissue laser treatment is able to remove diseased material from your smile in a non-surgical manner.

Soft Tissue Laser Treatment
Our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser is able to take the place of a traditional scalpel altering your gum line and removing decay with more precision and comfort than ever before. In fact, most patients don’t even need sutures afterwards! Dr. Russo typically recommends this service as a non-surgical option for gum disease treatment, as well as an effective solution for uneven soft tissue or an overly “gummy” smile. Our goal is to create the revitalizing results you want for your smile in a simple and effective way!
