Periodontal Treatments

Gum Disease involves the gum and bone around teeth. Inflammation of gums causes bleeding. Inflammation of bone leads to bone loss, loosening of teeth and abscesses. Periodontal treatment starts with deep cleaning of the root surfaces with instruments and ultrasonic scalers. It may also involve antibiotic as well as anti-microbial mouth rinses. Unresolved conditions may require periodontal surgery.
