We provide personalized care in a supportive environment, ensuring the best possible outcomes for patients of all ages.

Understanding Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease treatment aims to control the infection and, if possible, restore damaged tissues. The type and severity of gum disease (gingivitis to advanced periodontitis) dictate the treatment approach. Our treatments range from non-surgical methods, like deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), to more advanced surgical interventions for severe cases. These treatments help reduce gum inflammation, eliminate infection and prevent bone loss around the teeth.

The Gum Disease Treatment Process

Treatment begins with a thorough dental examination to assess the extent of the gum disease. Non-surgical treatment, the first line of defense, involves deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. Scaling removes tartar from the tooth surfaces, and root planing smoothes the root surfaces, discouraging further buildup of tartar and bacteria. Surgical treatments may be considered for advanced cases to restore supportive tissues.
