Gum therapy, also known as periodontal therapy, is a dental treatment aimed at improving the health of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. This service is typically recommended for patients with gum disease, which can lead to inflammation, recession, and loss of teeth if left untreated.
Gum therapy may involve a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing, which removes plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gums. In more advanced cases, gum surgery may be required to restore gum tissue and prevent further damage.
The goal of gum therapy is to reduce bacteria and inflammation, promote healing, and prevent the progression of gum disease. With proper care and maintenance, patients can enjoy healthier gums and a stable, confident smile.
If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums, it is important to seek treatment from a dental professional as soon as possible.
