Gum Treatments, Non-Surgical

Non-Surgical Gum Treatments

Non-surgical gum treatments can help remove the plaque and infected gum tissue in the early stages of periodontal disease, while smoothing the damaged root surfaces. These treatments include scaling and root planning along with adjunctive therapy such as delivery of antimicrobials to prevent future growth of bacteria.

In most cases, surgery is not required. However, most patients require ongoing non-surgical treatments to maintain proper gum health.
