Non-Surgical Periodontal treatment

Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment in South Brunswick

At Doctors of Dental Medicine we believe that most cases of periodontal disease can be effectively treated with conservative non-surgical treatment.  The treatment consists of scaling, root planning and curettage (a thorough deep cleaning below the gum line) of all affected areas.  In addition, antibacterial medicaments and a dental laser are used to sterilize the periodontal pockets.  We have found that if followed by meticulous home care and regular dental check-ups, most patients can avoid more aggressive periodontal surgery.
