When to seek treatment?
There are many treatments available for gum disease, and these treatments depend on the stage of disease,
how you may have responded to earlier treatments and your overall health.
Treatments range from nonsurgical procedures that control bacterial growth, to surgery to restore supportive tissues.
In some patients, the nonsurgical procedure of scaling and root planing is all that is needed to treat gum disease.
Surgery is needed when the tissue around the teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with nonsurgical options.
