Gum Treatment

Gum treatment is the treatment of active gum and jaw bone disease. The treatment can slow or stop the progression of the disease. Since there are different stages of gum disease (from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis), there are different levels of treatment. In some cases, the patient may be referred to a specialist.

Gum Surgery

Sometimes, in order to treat advanced gum disease, surgical procedures are necessary, such as:

Advanced Medications

Recent advances in periodontal treatment allow us to now place medications directly at the site of infection. One of the most commonly used medications of this kind is Arestin™. This is often used in conjunction with scaling and root planing. In addition, an antimicrobial rinse is sometimes used after some procedures.

Strict Home Care Regimen

A home care routine specific to the patient's individual needs may be prepared to prevent the patient from relapsing.
