Gum treatment is the treatment of active gum and jaw bone disease. Gum treatment can slow or stop the progression of gum disease. Since there are different stages of gum disease (from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis), there are different levels of treatment. To learn more about these different levels of treatment, please read our Periodontal patient education section and learn about our easy-to-understand color classification system. Are you blue, green, yellow, red or purple?
