I am diagnosed periodontal disease and my periodontist recommended periodontal surgery as treatment. That really scares me and I was wondering if there is any Non-surgical therapy that can help me. I am very very concern about this, I don’t want to lose my teeth.

Most periodontists would agree that after scaling and root planning, many patients do not require any further active treatment. However, the majority of patients will require ongoing maintenance therapy to sustain health, because non-surgical therapy does have its limitations. When it does not achieve periodontal health, surgery may be indicated to restore periodontal anatomy damaged by periodontal diseases and to facilitate oral hygiene practices. But as he hasn’t even tried with non surgical treatment I guess he evaluated that periodontal surgery is necessary. When your periodontist determines that the tissue around your teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment he requires surgery.

ask your dentist if they offer Perio Protect Trays...depending on how badly your gums are infected this may be an alternate treatment option.
