Gum Disease Treatment Downtown Toronto

Gum Disease Treatment

There are several options available for the treatment and relief of gum disease. The treatment, however, will vary depending on the severity of each case. Dr. Ammar Taimish (Downtown Toronto Dentist) will evaluate your specific needs during your dental examination. The extent of damage to your oral health caused by the periodontitis will ultimately determine the treatment plan required to correct it. 

Plaque and calculus will be removed during your dental cleaning which may require deep scaling and root planing. If necessary, a local anesthetic may be administered during this treatment. Dr. Ammar Taimish may also prescribe antibiotics to treat bacteria that has collected in the pockets of gum tissue in addition to a medicated mouthwash to be integrated into your daily oral health regimen.
