Gum treatment is mainly centered on controlling infection of your gums. A typical treatment would start off with the process of deep cleaning, which involves scaling and root planning, to scrap off tartar gathered above and below the gum line, and to get rid of germ or bacteria that thrived on tooth root.
For more severe gum disease, your dentist may also recommend surgical procedures, such as flap surgery, where he/she would lift back the gums and remove tartar deposits that gathered in deep pockets. This surgery would make it easier for you and your dentist to keep the area clean. In addition to flap surgery, bone and tissue grafts may also be performed to regenerate any bone or gum tissues lost to periodontitis.
