Periodontal (gum) surgery is often performed during the advanced stages of gum diseases to restore proper health to the teeth and mouth overall.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is performed when mild to advanced gum disease is present in order to eliminate plaque, tartar, and unwanted bacteria.
Crown lengthening is performed to enhance your smile by reducing excessive gum tissue or to create space for a restoration like a crown or bridge.
After scaling and root planing or another periodontal treatment, periodontal maintenance will help maintain the health of your gums and mouth.
