If you want to keep your teeth for life, you need to do more than just take care of your teeth themselves. You also need to take care of the structures that surround them: your gums and tooth-supporting bone. Periodontal (gum) disease, which is a bacterial infection, threatens these supporting tissues. As a result, when signs of trouble in your gums becomes apparent, it is essential to seek periodontal disease therapy as soon as possible.

Periodontal disease therapy includes both surgical and non-surgical techniques to restore health to your tissues that support your teeth and prevent tooth loss. These very effective therapies range from scalings (deep cleanings) that remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from beneath your gum line to surgical repair of lost gum and bone tissues. Some of the most common periodontal disease therapy procedures include:

  • Scaling and root planing
  • Gum grafting
  • Periodontal plastic surgery
  • Periodontal laser treatment
  • Crown lengthening surgery
  • Dental implants
