Our goal is to resolve patients’ periodontal issues through non-surgical regenerative therapies, to avoid the need for additional treatment or surgery down the line.
We provide non-surgical procedures to treat and maintain periodontal disease. These treatments, coupled with an excellent oral hygiene routine and healthy lifestyle habits, can aid in reversing the effects of periodontal disease and prevent further damage to gum tissue.
The primary purpose of nonsurgical periodontal therapy is to treat periodontal disease, by carefully removing bacteria and other toxins from under the gums and root surfaces. Healthy gum tissue should securely fit around each tooth. However, in the case of periodontal disease, bacteria from plaque buildup can spread underneath the gums, damaging the gum tissue and causing pockets to form between the tissue and the tooth. If you display signs of aggressive gum disease, including severe bacteria and tartar buildup and formation of deep pockets, scaling and root planning is most likely the first procedure your dental care provider will use as part of the initial therapy.
Our goal is to resolve patients’ periodontal issues through non-surgical regenerative therapies, to avoid the need for additional treatment or surgery down the line. We aim to heal patients through thorough and individualized care, so patients can maintain optimal oral health through at home care and routine dental health visits.
In the case where non-surgical therapy does not resolve in sufficient pocket depth reduction,further surgical pocket reduction may be necessary. In these cases, you may be referred to a periodontist.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease is caused by bacteria buildup from plaque that causes inflammation in the gums. There are several types of gum disease, beginning with the mildest form, gingivitis, and progressing to more severe forms of periodontitis. Periodontal maintenance is necessary for patients who have been treated for some of periodontal disease and works to prevent the disease from worsening.

These Patients Have a Whole New Perspective on the Dentist
"I was impressed and happy I found this practice. The dentist was empathetic, had great calming energy, and handled a very nervous patient getting a wisdom tooth extracted. (I was surprised how quick it was - and there was zero pain). All the staff were friendly, and they ran me through the costs before proceeding. I'm a fan!"
"I had a great experience from the moment I walked through the door. The staff at this practice are top-notch. The hygienist was a genuinely nice person and made me feel so comfortable. The dentist was friendly and thorough. I’m so glad I chose to come here after many years of going without dental care. They let me know that I’m valued, and I’ve gone from feeling anxious about dental work to excited about partnering with these professionals to achieve optimal dental health."
"I’ve been going to Zöe Dental for about a month now and absolutely love it! They are very considerate about the barriers that you may have when it comes to getting dental work and try to make it the best experience for you. I was able to get an appointment with them fairly quickly even as a new patient. They have quickly gotten me in to address any issues that I was having. I’ve been recommending them over and over again to my family and friends!"
"Zöe Dental is a nice place to visit…..and it's a dentist's office. Everyone there is friendly. The hygienists are personable and make you feel at ease. You have the option of choosing between a massage chair, essential oils, chapstick, and so on to ease your anxieties. They ask you what matters most during your dental experience. They bill your insurance and you can even get a cookie at check out. I am only going to Zöe Dental from here on out."
"Newly arrived in Asheville, my wife and I selected Zöe Dental based on recommendations from friends and on internet research. We're very glad we did. The practice is without question the most well-run, professional, and confidence-inspiring dentists' office we've ever encountered."
"Finally a dentist and staff that really cares about the person. I felt well taken care of and was listened to. Having had terrible experiences in the past, I came away from Zöe Dental feeling confident that my needs will be met with expertise and compassion."
