Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)
Plaque is removed via scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove bacteria that contribute to the disease.
Gingival Flap Surgery
For severe gum diseases, a flap procedure is required whereby a section of the gums is pulled back to clean the roots of your teeth and repair damaged bone, if needed. The gum flap will be sewn back into place and covered with gauze to stop the bleeding.
Gum Tissue Graft
Gum recession is the process in which the tissue that surrounds the teeth pulls away from a tooth, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth’s root. To repair the damage and prevent further dental problems, a gum tissue graft can be carried out to prevent further gum recession.
