Gum infections

Gum problems are very common amongst all age groups of people. They are seen due to poor maintenance of oral hygiene/ buildup of tartar on teeth. It starts with problems of gums only, called gingivitis and when not treated, it spreads deeper to bone, also known as periodontitis.

Treatment options

Scaling and root planning (SRP)

The very first line of treatment for gum infections, SRP is a simple, non-invasive treatment option which removes deposits from teeth surfaces to reduce disease load.

Laser Deep Cleaning (LANAP)

LANAP is another non-surgical treatment choice for mild to moderate stages of gum infections where benefits of laser are used for removing bacteria and reducing infection, with minimal pain, no bleeding and faster healing.

Flap surgery & Grafting for bone defects (Periodontal Regeneration)

For gum infections that have reached an advanced stage, surgical options are recommended where opening of gums gives better access to eliminate all infectious tissue. Further, this also allows to regenerate lost bone with grafts, membranes and other biologic agents for reversing damage from gum infections.

Cosmetic gum therapy and interdisciplinary treatments

Going beyond treatment of infections, Dept of Periodontics, SSCDS Dental Clinics also specialises in aesthetic gum procedures like root coverage, gum contouring, gum depigmentation that may be needed when other cosmetic procedures for teeth are planned.
