Gingivitis can become periodontitis if left untreated. Depending on your symptoms and their causes,the dentist provides gum infection treatment, receding gums treatment or gum abscess treatment. If gum disease is caught early and no damage has been done to the support structures, you may just need a professional cleaning from one of our hygienists. However, our Dental professionals at Bakery Hill Dental needs to evaluate your teeth and gums regularly to ensure that your periodontal disease is not advancing.

The first step in treating periodontal disease involves scaling and root planing and a special deep cleaning. With this treatment, the dentist removes tartar and plaque to the botom of every periodontal pocket in the gums.
This treatment can be done over a period of several visits if needed,so require another visit in a few weeks or months after this procedure so a dentist can measure the healing progress after the special cleaning. We will also re-measure periodontal pockets, and, if the pockets have worsened or supporting bone is lost, we will have to continue treatment or even perform periodontal surgery to remove tartar and plaque from hard-to-reach areas. The gums would then be stitched to tightly hug the teeth to avoid pockets from forming again.
