If the disease has only affected the gums, dental calculus cleaning and good oral hygiene may be sufficient. Tartar cleaning is the process of removing tartar, plaque and stains accumulated on the tooth surface with the help of special tools and should be done regularly even in healthy individuals.
In cases where the disease is more advanced, a curettage procedure that requires deep cleaning under the gums may be required. While the root surface is cleaned by entering into the pocket during tartar cleaning, the gingival tissue of the same pocket is cleaned during the curettage process. This procedure can be performed with conventional methods using hand tools or with Er: YAG lasers in clinics with advanced technology and knowledge.
With the laser, gum tissue can be cleaned more comfortably and effectively.
If there is an advanced bone loss in the advanced stages of gum disease, different laser treatment techniques can be used according to the type of melting, and treatment can be performed without the need for surgical procedures.
