Periodontal Treatment for All Stages of Gum Disease


Gum disease can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums, and proper dental treatment is needed to restore your periodontal health. The treatment you receive will depend largely on how far the gum disease has advanced. Here is a look at your treatment options:


  • Gingivitis Treatment
    Often, gingivitis damage can be reversed with a professional dental cleaning to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth, especially around the gum line. Your dentist will go over proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as possibly recommend a mouthwash to help keep infection-causing bacteria at bay. In some cases, if your gingivitis is more serious, your dentist will also prescribe antibiotics to fight the infection.


  • Periodontitis Treatment
    In more advanced stages of gum disease, the gums begin to retract from your teeth, forming pockets where bacterial infection can worsen. In these cases, a non-surgical procedure called root planing and scaling is recommended, which involves a thorough cleaning of the roots of your teeth to remove tartar and plaque buildup well below the gum line. It also involves smoothing out your tooth roots to remove bacterial toxins. For comfort, this procedure can often be performed under sedation.


  • Advanced Periodontitis Treatment
    If your gum disease is significantly advanced, dental surgery may be required to address the infection. Surgical procedures aim to repair and reduce the pockets caused when your gums pull away from your teeth. Your dentist can also perform guided regeneration to help your body start on the path toward healing after the loss of gum and bone to periodontal infection.
