periodontal therapy - Markham dentists by 7 Days Dental

Periodontal Therapy

Our gums act as very crucial protection for our teeth. That is why they are part of your health and our dental treatment recommendations at 7 Days Dental. Brushing and flossing are helpful tools to help you maintain or improve their condition, but if you have issues with your gums already developing, there are some solutions our Markham dentist can provide.

Gum disease

Gum disease may be caused by poor oral hygiene or nutrition, untreated gingivitis, teeth grinding, certain medications, tobacco use, hormonal changes, age, or genetics. It can be characterized by gums that are bleeding, red, irritated, or swollen. You may also notice your teeth are loosening or shifting, your gums are receding, your bite has changed, or you seem to suffer from bad breath all the time.

Periodontal therapy options

At 7 Days Dental, we offer a range of dental procedures in general, but some that are specifically designed to manage conditions related to your gums. Our dentist may recommend one of various periodontal therapy options.


  • Scaling and root planing: We scrape the surfaces of your teeth down to the gum pockets to remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins.
  • Dental implants: This first step in a dental restoration involves inserting a screw into your jaw and adding a crown or bridge on top
  • Gum graft surgery: If you have receding gums, we can perform gum graft surgery by taking tissue from the roof of your mouth or other area. He will then use it to cover the exposed roots of your teeth, as well as avoid more recession and bone loss.
  • Gum reshaping: We can reshape your gum line to expose more teeth and make gums smaller so they are not as apparent when you smile.
  • Regenerating bone and tissue: If gum disease impacts the bone that supports your teeth, we can help treat bone and tissue loss by removing the bacteria under your gums.
  • Gum pocket reduction: Our dentist will remove bacteria from under your gum tissue and then attach it to fit snugly around the bone that supports the base of your teeth.
  • Laser treatment: We may use laser dentistry as a periodontal therapy option.

The health of your gums

Your gums play an important role in protecting your teeth and the bone that supports them. That is why it is important to develop or maintain healthy oral habits between dentist appointments. As one of our patients, we also encourage you to schedule a routine checkup and cleaning at our Markham dental clinic once or twice per year. This will give our dentist the opportunity to examine your entire mouth and determine if anything may be wrong.


Negligent oral care is one of the main reasons that a patient will develop problems with their teeth and gums. If you have any oral health issues, our dentist can diagnose them and make recommendations for dental treatment options—including periodontal therapy. Contact us today to book an appointment with our team. We look forward to treating you at 7 Days Dental.
