HOW THE GUMS ARE TREATED

NON SURGICAL METHODS

SCALING AND ROOT PLANING: Dental scaling is the most common procedure to treat patients with gum diseases. Scaling refers to the removal of the plaque bacteria from the tooth surface below the gum line. Root planing involves the deeper treatment of the root surfaces of the teeth so that the gums can properly attach to the tooth surface.
ANTIBIOTICS: Plaque buildup is due to micro-organsim accumulations around the tooth surface. Antibiotics can be used as an adjunctive therapy to the scaling and root planing for the treatment of the gum diseases. Antibiotic mouth rinses can be helpful for the destruction of the harmful bacteria in the oral cavity.
BITE CORRECTION: Irregular bite can lead to various problems in the oral cavity. It may cause bone loss and may affect the joint of the oral cavity in long terms. So bite- guards are given to stabilize the bite and it reduces the pressure on the joint and the muscles.
SPLINTING: Mobility of teeth is a common complaint of patient which is caused by loss of supporting bone. Dental splint is an appliance designed to immobilize and stabilise mobile loose teeth.
