Gum Disease Treatments at Chow Dental Group in Brampton
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost. Whether it is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day.

How is Periodontal Disease Treated?
In the early stages of periodontal disease we can use deep cleaning to remove the hardened plaque and infected tissue, then smooth the damaged root surfaces of the teeth. This process allows the gum to heal. An antibiotic rinse may also be applied to help control the infection. Once a deep cleaning has been performed, it is imperative that the individual maintains a regular brushing and flossing schedule to keep the plaque from building up again. If periodontitis is far too advanced, then Laser Periodontal Therapy may be necessary.
