Gum Disease Treatment

At Cannon Family Dental the main goal of gum disease treatment is to control the infection.  The number and types of treatment will vary, depending on the extent of the disease.  Any type of treatment requires that the patient keep up good daily care at home. Dr. Cannon may also suggest changing certain behaviors, such as quitting smoking, as a way to improve treatment outcome.

Some treatment options are scaling and root planning, prescription mouth rinse, medication, flap surgery, or bone tissue. If you have gum disease, at Cannon Family Dental we will determine the right treatment plan for you!
