Medication prescribed by the dentist should be used after scaling and curettage.
If the disease has severely progressed, periodontal surgical procedures (gingival surgery) should be performed. Surgical procedures may be required to prevent recurrence of and protect against the disease in cases of dental recession and bone loss.
The surgical and clinical treatments may be performed using conventional methods, or laser may be used for some treatments if deemed appropriate and recommended by the dentist. The laser therapy has been widely and successfully used for gingival diseases in recent years.
