Gum Disease Treatment Options

Checking womans mouthGum disease treatment implements several components. First, Dr. Scaff does his best to share information with patients to prevent gum disease from ever starting. He also strives to give patients the most conservative gum disease treatment procedures at the practice near Round Rock.

During a regular check up, Dr. Scaff will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth, in between the teeth, and below the gums. This regular cleaning can often reveal gum disease, and he may recommend gum disease treatment, depending on your needs.

Regular dental hygiene, such as flossing and brushing, can help prevent periodontal disease from developing and help preserve a patient’s overall dental health.

Finding even minor periodontal disease requires a dental response. Gum disease treatment used to call for much less conservative procedures, like surgery.

While surgery is still available if required, Dr. Scaff and team are pleased to offer alternative gum disease treatment procedures, such as deep dental cleanings and special mouth rinses.
