Periodontal therapy refers to treatments for periodontal disease, a common gum disease that affects around 3 out of 4 adults at some point in their lives. Periodontitis can be mild or severe. As such, there are various types of periodontal therapy procedures depending on the severity of periodontitis, including dental deep cleaning, gum sculpting, and more.
At Sapphire Smiles, our dentist examines your teeth for signs of gum disease during regular dental checkups. If you have gum disease or periodontitis, our dentist treats it with non-surgical periodontal therapy, comprising scaling and root planing, before proceeding to more advanced periodontal treatments.
