Periodontal therapy is a type of conservative or non-surgical treatment for gum disease. Its goal is to control and manage periodontal diseases without the need for surgery. Ultimately, it helps restore optimal gum health, which, in turn, helps keep tooth loss at bay.

Healthy Gums Equal Healthy Smiles
Periodontal therapy is often the first line of treatment for slight periodontitis. It’s at this stage of gum disease wherein a patient has at least one tooth with 3 mm of gum attachment loss. About 9% of people with periodontal disease are at this stage.
Prompt periodontal therapy can help your gums get back to being healthy. In the long run, this means that you also get to keep your pearly whites safe, secure, and in place, and it will help your jawbone stay healthy and strong. Moreover, early gum disease treatment can keep chronic inflammation at bay. This, in turn, helps lower your risks of developing other, more serious, health problems.
What we provide
Plaque and tartar can build up on the surfaces of the teeth below the gumline. This accumulation occurs as the gums recede (move away) from the teeth. Note that in receded gums, pockets form, and they allow plaque and bacteria to enter. Scaling, also known as “deep cleaning,” eliminates these hidden build-ups.
