Can Gum Disease Be Cured?

Early gum disease (gingivitis) can be cured by adopting a good oral hygiene routine and seeing our Plymouth MI dentist every 6 months. However, gum disease is irreversible once it develops into the more serious periodontal disease. Call our gum disease treatment dentist as soon as possible if your gums are bleeding, swollen, sore, or red.

What Is the Best Treatment for Gum Disease?

We may recommend scaling and root planing if the gum pockets around your teeth are deeper than 4 millimeters and your X-rays show signs of bone loss. During a dental deep cleaning, we remove plaque and tartar buildup both above and below the gum line. Once we remove plaque and tartar, we smooth out tooth roots so receding gums have a better chance of reattaching to teeth.
