Good Habits Maintain Teeth Longevity

Gum Treatment

Causes of Gum Disease

Gum disease triggers inflammation between the gums and the bone encompassing the teeth. If plaque on the tooth surface isn’t removed by brushing and remains untreated, it hardens over time. The toxins released by this hardened plaque seep into the gums, damaging them and the surrounding teeth. This could eventually lead to the teeth becoming loose and falling out.

Regular checkups for pain or other symptoms in teeth or gums, as well as early treatment, are ways to preserve natural teeth longevity

Gum Treatment

GENTLE Gum Treatment: What to look for

  • Bleeding or pus coming out of the gums when brushing teeth
  • Loss of appetite and bad taste in the mouth
  • If the gap between the tooth and the gum gradually widens
  • If your teeth are loose or missing
  • If the root of the tooth is visible to the naked eye

Gum Treatment Process



The most basic treatment method for gum disease, removing tartar around the gums and on the tooth surface using ultrasonic instruments and scaling equipment


Root Planing

Removes inflammation and tartar from the tooth’s root surface, leaving the root smoother and harder


Gum Curettage

A procedure that inserts an instrument deep into the gums to scrape off inflammatory tissues, calculus, and plaque, and cleans the root surface of the tooth


Gum Surgery

Gum surgery is performed when the root cause of the disease cannot be removed with general gum treatment methods


Precautions After Gum Treatment

01. A bit of bleeding post-procedure is to be expected.

02. After treatment, you should avoid hot food, cold water, and spicy or irritating food for about 2-3 days.

03. Your teeth may temporarily feel more sensitive or shaky than before the treatment, but such symptoms are short-lived.

04. We recommend avoiding blood-thinning or anticoagulant medications.
