Periodontal Treatment - Non-Surgical

Periodontal Disease, also known as gum disease, infects the gum and bone supporting the teeth. If not treated properly, the disease can become severe enough that teeth are lost and bone is destroyed. The first step in treatment is a non-surgical approach which involves a special cleaning called scaling and root planing. A local anesthetic may be given to assist with the careful removal of plaque and tartar in the periodontal pockets. Periodontal disease will not go away on its own. Preventing and treating the disease in the early stages are the best options to keeping a healthy smile.
