Treat Gum Disease in Escondido

Personalized & high-tech periodontal therapies

Give your gums some TLC

About 80% of people suffer from gum disease. Also called periodontal disease, this dental health issue causes bleeding gums, inflammation, gum recession, and tooth loss. What’s more, periodontal disease increases your risk of heart disease by about 20% and has been linked to rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.

But at TLC Escondido Dental, you’re a person not a number. Our personalized and high-tech periodontal care helps prevent and treat gum disease. Our minimally-invasive and proven gum disease treatments in Escondido ease discomfort, prevent tooth loss, and keep your gums in great shape.

What causes gum disease?

gum disease escondido, CA

Everyone has bacteria living in their mouth. Good dental hygiene and regular dental cleanings will help keep this bacteria from causing problems. Otherwise, the bacteria will multiply and start to form plaque and tartar. These sticky white substances will build up on your teeth, fueling gum disease.

Signs you might be suffering from gum disease

  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
  • Permanent teeth that are loose or separating

Deep cleanings

Time for some gum therapy! This treatment cleans deep between your gums and teeth along the roots. Sometimes called root planing and scaling, a deep cleaning removes any tartar buildup down below your gum line. We’ll numb your mouth ahead of time and can split your treatment between several visits to ensure a comfortable experience.

Laser bacterial reduction

We’re proud to offer this high-tech laser treatment to help reduce and eliminate gum-disease causing bacteria in your mouth. Laser bacterial reduction is a painless procedure, takes 10 minutes at most, and reduces the bacterial count in your mouth for up to 6 weeks. We recommend combining this treatment with your twice-a-year dental cleaning and exam.

Our patients say it best


Ronnie I.

I didn’t go to the dentist for 20 years because I was terrified as a child. When I found TLC I started to come back and get my teeth worked on. Now I never miss an appointment and look forward to getting my teeth cleaned and checked out. It’s a great experience and I recommend them to everyone!

I love this place! I’ve been coming here for five years and have not been to another dental office with better customer service. I drove all the way from Northern California to attend attend this appointment.
