Periodontal (gum) Disease Treatment
The goal of periodontal treatment is to restore diseased gum tissue to healthy tissue. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to more serious diseases that lead to major damage to soft tissue and bone that support teeth. In the most severe cases, even teeth loss. Depending on the severity of the periodontal disease, treatment can vary from scalings that remove plaque from beneath gum line to surgical repair to lost gum and bone tissue.
