When should I consider gum therapy?

We recommend gum therapy at the first signs of gum disease, including bleeding gums or persistent bad breath.

What does gum therapy involve?

Treatment typically includes deep cleaning, scaling, and possibly root planing to remove bacteria and plaque.

What is the recovery time for gum therapy?

Recovery varies but usually involves minimal discomfort and a short downtime. We’ll provide post-operative care instructions for a smooth recovery.

Are there alternatives to gum therapy?

Early intervention with gum therapy can prevent the need for more invasive treatments like gum surgery.
