Treatment Of Gum Diseases

   If caught in the early stages, periodontal disease can be treated with a deep cleaning designed to remove the tartar from below the gum line and eliminate the infection-causing bacteria.
   If the disease is in the more advance stages specialized treatments will be required to reduce the pockets and restore the lost bone support.
   Gum grafts can be used to treat receding gums.  They can be used to cover the exposed roots, prevent further bone loss and restore your smile back to normal.
   The goal of treatment is to return your gums back to a healthy state and help you maintain it for a life time.
   The benefits of periodontal treatment include prevention of future bone & tooth loss, the ability to chew without pain, healthy gums and fresher breath.
