After a gum surgery treatment it is very important that the periodontist or dental hygienist informs the patient how to clean the teeth and the gum tissue with toothbrush or fluoride toothpaste and also an antibacterial mouth rinse. In periodontital treatment the gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces that become infected. The body's immune system fights back the bacteria as the plague spreads and also grows below the gum line. All the bacterial toxins and the body's natural response to the infection start to break down the bone. The tissues that connect and hold the teeth in place are also affected. There are a variety of treatments for gum disease depending on the stage of the diseases and also how they have responded to all the early treatments. Many dentists and dental surgeons have categorised gum treatments as non surgical therapies that control bacterial growth and as a restorative treatment supportive tissues. In some patients, the nonsurgical procedure of scaling and root planning is all that is needed to treat gum diseases. Surgery is needed when the tissue around the teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with nonsurgical options. Many antibiotic treatments can be used either in combination with surgery and also with other therapies so as to reduce or temporarily eliminate the bacteria that is associated with gum disease.
