Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy
Non-surgical periodontal treatment is recommended as the primary treatment for periodontal disease. Adequate oral hygiene instruction will be emphasized. The dentist will also perform scaling and root planning to clean periodontal pockets and roots of the teeth, to remove plaque and tartar to achieve a healthy root surface so that the supporting tissue can heal.
Patients need to seriously improve their living habits and oral hygiene habits during treatment, including blood sugar control and smoking cessation to have ideal treatment results.
