GUM DISEASE TREATMENT OPTIONS
Scaling and root planing is a type of non-surgical treatment that involves cleaning and smoothing the infected areas around the roots of the teeth. This helps to remove plaque and tartar that have built up and restore healthy gum tissue. Antibiotic therapies, such as mouth rinses or gels, may be used to help reduce bacteria and inflammation. Finally, regular maintenance cleanings with your dentist can help prevent further build up of plaque and tartar, which can also help manage symptoms of gum disease.
Flap surgery, sometimes called osseous surgery, is a procedure used to treat moderate or advanced stages of gum disease. During this surgery, the gums are gently lifted back and away from the teeth, allowing the dentist to remove plaque and tartar build-up that has accumulated below the gum line. Bone or tissue grafts involve taking grafts from another part of your body, such as your chin, and using them to replace missing bone caused by gum disease. This helps to provide stability for the new gum tissue and encourages the regeneration of healthy tissue. Surgical treatments can help reduce inflammation, improve the appearance of the gums, and help reduce symptoms of gum disease.
