GUM TREATMENT :
 

Gum treatment is the treatment of active gum and jaw bone disease. Gum disease treatment can slow or stop the progression of gum 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 treatment consists of one or more of the following procedures, depending on the individual case:

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing is a common non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease. By using special instruments, Dr. Sells removes bacteria and infection from the unhealthy deep pockets around the teeth below the gum line. This is often referred to as a "deep cleaning." First the tooth is scaled to remove the plaque and tarter that has accumulated on the tooth.

Then the root is planed or smoothed. This eliminates any rough areas on the root that can easily trap plaque and bacteria.


A smooth clean root provides a healthy environment to allow the gums to heal naturally and reattach to the tooth. This will create a reduced pocket, therefore eliminating areas for bacteria to hide and cause further disease.

Scaling and Root Planing combined with a strict home care routine and more frequent periodontal cleanings and exams will increase your chances of keeping your natural smile.
