Tooth decay is one of the world’s most common diseases. Without proper treatment, it could lead to pain, tooth loss, or even illness.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Giesy strongly believes in caring for patients’ overall health, which is why he offers oral cancer screenings.
Oral cancer screening can help us detect mouth cancer early, resulting in greater treatment success. Cancer screening and education is a key element in helping patients maintain optimal long-term oral health.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease
When it comes to gum disease, trusting in an experienced oral care professional is a must. According to recent findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of Americans aged 30 or older have periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease. Thankfully, Dr. Giesy is the expert for you.
Dr. Giesy is experienced in identifying and treating periodontal disease. As your Tacoma dentist, he will be able to explain specific treatment recommendations that will allow you to live a pain-free, healthy life.
Periodontal Flap Surgery
When periodontitis develops, your teeth are in danger. If the disease can’t be controlled by non-surgical treatments like cleaning and scaling, then periodontal flap surgery may be your best treatment option.
During the procedure, Dr. Giesy cleans the root of the tooth and repairs any damage to the bone. Sedation may be used to help you feel comfortable.
Periodontal Laser Therapy
The use of lasers in dentistry is revolutionizing Tacoma dental care. Thanks to Dr. Giesy’s training, we are able to utilize lasers as a minimally invasive treatment method. With a laser, it’s possible to perform a procedure with less removal of healthy tissue than conventional methods would require.
Additionally, lasers act to seal off blood vessels and nerve endings in the tissue under treatment, resulting in less bleeding and pain, increasing your comfort.
