Treatment of Gum Disease
The treatment for gum disease is recommended depending upon on the extent of the infection. In cases of early stage gum infection (gingivitis), a professional dental cleaning can help in getting rid of bacteria and prevent the disease from spreading further.
If gum disease has progressed to further stages, a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing is performed to remove infected tissue and bacteria. Deep cleaning involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria from above and below the gum line. Root planing will smooth out the root surfaces.
Surgery may be needed to treat advanced periodontal disease as it could damage the bone and soft tissue supporting your teeth. In worse cases, the extraction may be needed for the infected tooth.
