Understanding traditional periodontal therapy

Traditional periodontal therapy includes a variety of non-surgical and surgical methods to effectively treat different stages of gum disease.

Scaling and root planing
A deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smooths the root surfaces. This treatment is often the first step in addressing periodontal disease, helping to reduce gum inflammation and prevent the progression of gum pockets.

Gum grafting
Replaces lost gum tissue and covers exposed roots to reduce sensitivity and improve aesthetics. By taking tissue from the palate or using synthetic materials, gum grafting protects the roots of the teeth and reduces further recession.

Periodontal pocket reduction
Surgically reduces the depth of pockets between the teeth and gums to facilitate easier cleaning and prevent further progression of disease. This process allows for more effective removal of harmful bacteria and helps maintain periodontal health.

Dental crown lengthening
Reshapes the gum and bone to expose more of the tooth, making restorative procedures possible. This is particularly beneficial for teeth that are broken below the gum line or for those needing dental crowns but lacking sufficient tooth structure.

Regenerative procedures
Techniques that aim to regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting the teeth. These procedures often involve grafting to promote the body's natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue, reversing some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.
