Gum Diseases Treatment

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that can damage the bone and tissue that support your teeth. Treatment for gum disease depends on the severity of the condition. Mild cases can often be treated with good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing twice a day and regular dental visits. More advanced cases may require scaling and root planing, which involves scraping away plaque and tartar from the teeth and root surfaces, and medication such as antibiotics or antiseptic mouthwashes. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to restore the health of the gums and supporting structures.

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure used to remove the buildup of bacteria, tartar, and plaque from the teeth and gums. This procedure is done under a local anesthetic and can help reduce gum inflammation and prevent further gum disease. 

What is pocket reduction surgery?

Pocket reduction surgery is a procedure used to reduce the depth of the pockets between the teeth and gums. This can help reduce the number of bacteria that can accumulate in the area and improve the overall health of the gums.
