The first step towards treatment of early periodontal disease is usually deep cleaning. It involves cleaning of the root surfaces below the gum line of your teeth to remove the calculus, and reduce the germs on the root. Also known as scaling & root planning.This treatment attempts to stop infection from progressing. However, it cannot regrow any lost bone or gum tissues or close the pocket that has formed . Bacteria can still collect in the spaces between the tooth and gum, allowing germs to multiply and attack the collagen and bone again.
If this early stage gum treatment does not work or the disease is moderate to severe, than a gum surgery is suggested. There are two kinds of gum surgery, traditional surgery and laser surgery.
Traditional periodontal surgery involves the use of a blade to cut the gums and access the tooth root. It involves root cleaning, bone shaping, and then stitching the gums back together at a lower level. The gums may be cut down to reduce the height of the pocket.The gums may be shorter after cutting the healthy tissue which may cause tooth sensitivity because more of the tooth is exposed, and it may not look esthetically good.The traditional gum surgery has certain drawbacks that can be overcome with the use of laser.
