Surgical and Non-Surgical Gum Treatment

Surgical and non-surgical is completed to treat gingivitis. Depending on the condition and the severity of the problem, the dentist will create a periodontal chart which shows the bone loss around the tooth. Non-surgical gum treatment, called perio scaling and deep cleaning, is done in 2 visits. First visit will consist of numbing half of the mouth to lessen the pain while cleaning below the gum line.
