Gum therapy consists of removing the bacteria and debris around the teeth and gums. For mild cases, this procedure can be as simple as normal scaling or cleaning, with the implementation of adequate brushing and flossing. The more severe the inflammation, the more advanced the treatment will be. Sometimes the only way to access and clean the roots is by doing an “open flap surgery”. This process will allow us to clean the roots intensively and make sure there is no residual debris.
