Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease can be treated in a variety of ways, but the most conservative method is with a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing. This is where your dentist or hygienist removes infection caused by bacterial plaque below and around your gumline and then smooths out your tooth roots so bacteria doesn’t return. Advanced gum disease may require other procedures to rebuild recessed tissue, like grafting, to prevent tooth and bone loss.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that builds up around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulate. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smooths your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.
