Gum Treatment

Non Surgical Procedures

In some patients, the following procedures are sufficient to treat gum disease.

Simple Cleaning

This involves removing the tartar build-up and other hard deposits above the gums that are difficult to remove at home.

Scaling and Root Planing- SRP

This is also called as deep-cleaning. It is done using local anesthetic and the calculus (harder deposits) is removed from below the gums. The roots are also smoothed and planned.

Gum disease in Pregnancy

This is called as pregnancy gingivitis which occurs due to hormonal changes. 50%-70% of women develop gingivitis sometime during their pregnancy.
