PERIODONTAL GUM TREATMENT

NON-SURGICAL GUM TREATMENT


Scaling and root planing done by a dental professional is the main tool used to treat periodontal disease.  Chlorhexidine is a part of a professional treatment program which helps treat swelling and bleeding due to gingivitis, an early, reversible stage of gum disease.  It can be prescribed by your dentist as a home rinse or used via irrigation during cleaning with your dental professional.
