What is Non-Surgical Gum Treatment?

Most of us visit the dentist for our annual cleaning, but if your dentist starts to see signs of possible gum disease he will schedule you ever 6 months to keep close eye on the health of your gums and teeth. If you develop gum disease your dentist will use non-surgical gum treatments. These are the least invasive and most cost-effective ways to keep your gums healthy. Scaling and root planing is the most common procedure and it includes cleaning the plaque and tartar right at the tooth surface and make sure any harmful bacteria is removed from and below the gums. This keeps the tooth smooth so the gum can reattach to the tooth. Regular gum maintenance is key!
