Non-surgical Gum Treatment

Gum disease affects many adults though you maintain healthy teeth and smile. We at Lakewood often prefer the non-surgical treatments to cure the gum disease as the first step. Those include

Scaling and root planning

This procedure is adopted for the treatment of gum disease to rid the teeth and gums of pathogenic bacteria and the toxins they produce incorporated into the root surface of the teeth.


These are applied directly to the affected areas to disinfect the tiny and hard to reach areas with an antimicrobial rinse (usually chlorhexidine), or even a topical antibiotic (tetracycline or doxycycline).

Oral Hygiene

As plaque is the main cause of periodontal (Gum) disease, it's important to remove it daily. In which patient should play a vital role in keeping their mouth disease-free. Our dentist will instruct the most effective brushing and flossing techniques and recommends the products to be used at home.
