Gum diseases are more common than you think, and they can even lead to teeth loss if not treated on time. Periodontal diseases are treated in different ways depending on several factors, like the stage of the disease you are in, earlier treatments, and overall health. Our dentist in Plantation, FL, will thoroughly evaluate your gums before deciding if you need a surgical or non-surgical gum disease treatment. The surgical procedure restores the gum tissue surrounding your teeth, whereas the non-surgical procedure helps to control bacterial growth.
Your dentist can perform both procedures in our state-of-the-art dental office in Plantation, FL. The time needed for the procedure, the time needed for healing, and the degree of discomfort post-treatment depend on the type of gum treatment you are undergoing. You will be given a local anesthetic before the treatment starts, so you will not feel any pain during the process.
