Why have periodontal treatment?

Dental plaque is not easily removed from the surfaces of the teeth. If done correctly, every day brushing can remove the bacterial deposits above the gums. Sometimes these bacterial deposits can become calcified, leading to the formation of tartar above or below the gums. Tartar can only be removed by your dentist or hygienist using special instruments. The purpose of periodontal treatment is to remove bacterial deposits and tartar from pockets around affected teeth halting the process of the disease. In certain cases, surgery involving the gums needs to be done.
