In cases where gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontal disease. Inflammation affects the soft tissue
(gums) and teeth, creating pockets between them. If left untreated, the pockets become deep and can cause teeth to become loose or even fall out.
A common solution for controlling periodontal disease is a deep dental cleaning also known as periodontal therapy and often performed with/without any anaesthesia.
In some conditions like recession defects we perform surgical tissue grafting and regenerative techniques for improved results.
