Our immune system reacts to those bacteria present there, and as a result, of it, inflammation occurs.

Scaling

Antibiotics. Oral antibiotics can help control bacterial infection. Topical antibiotics include mouth rinses or insertion of gels in space between teeth and gums or into pockets after the cleaning is done. However, oral antibiotics are used to eliminate infection-causing bacteria.

Surgical treatments

Flap surgery

Periodontitis causes bone loss; the below bone may be recontoured earlier the gum tissue is sutured back in its place. After the healing, it is easy to clean and maintain healthy gum tissue.

Soft tissue grafts

Bone grafting

 It is done when the bone around the teeth is destroyed. The grafts are usually composed of small pieces of your bone; the bone can be synthetic or donated. It holds the tooth and prevents tooth loss.serves as a platform for the regrowth of natural bone.

Guided tissue regeneration

It allows the regrowth of bone destroyed by bacteria. It is done by biocompatible fabric. It will enable the bone to grow again
