Stopping Gum Disease In Its Tracks

Dental Patient in Chair Discussing Treatment with Hygienist

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is one of the most serious oral health conditions. While you may not see notable damage on the outside, progressive gum disease can do irreversible damage on the inside. This include damage to the gums, tooth roots and jaw bone as well as your cardiovascular health if it is not addressed. In fact, gum disease has been linked to many overall health problems, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and premature birth.

Fortunately, when gum disease is treated early, patients can avoid these complications as well as benefit from more conservative treatment methods. Undetected and left alone, however, gum disease will progress to its most advanced stage of periodontitis. Therefore, routine dental exams become even more important, as these are visits that allow your dentist to watch for signs of early gum disease (gingivitis), such as receding gums, swollen gums or bleeding gums.

Depending on the stage and severity of your periodontal disease, Dr. Mitzi Morris will recommend the most effective treatment option. We offer a variety of modern methods to eliminate the infection within the gums and protect the future health of your smile. In most cases of early gum disease, we are able to perform dental scaling and root planing to stop gum disease before it threatens your health or causes tooth loss.

What is a Deep Cleaning?

Dental scaling and root planing is the procedure of choice for early stages of gum disease, or gingivitis. This is often referred to as a “deep cleaning” and it is the most conservative and effective method for treating gingivitis. A scaling and root planing may involve handheld tools and/or ultrasonic cleaning devices to remove plaque and tartar from the root surfaces of your teeth, along the gum line and within the deep periodontal pockets. This eradicates the bacteria that cause the inflammation and infection found in gum disease.

Let us stop the progression of gum disease before it is too late. Call Dr. Mitzi Morris in Roswell to schedule a scaling and root planing or to learn more about our advanced treatment options for periodontitis.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
