The periodontal treatment consists of the healing of the gums, in which there has been inflammation or bleeding, due to the bacterial plaque on the teeth, this solidifies and turns into tartar, the treatment performs a deep cleaning of the gums. 

A degenerative and chronic disease, which must be treated effectively, in order to prevent it from recurring again over time. If it is not treated correctly it can create irreversible problems in the gums, teeth and bone.

Treatment characteristics

Who is this kind of treatment for?

Periodontal treatment consists of a series of procedures performed to repair the damage caused to our gums and teeth by gingivitis and periodontitis.


Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums that is usually caused by the accumulation of bacteria in the area between the teeth and the gums. 

Periodontitis is the result of bacteria under the gums causing inflammation and can even destroy the bone that holds the tooth in place. 


Some alarming symptoms which you should visit the dentist about are, among others;

Bleeding when brushing your teeth

Red or blue shades

Tooth sensitivity to cold

Change in tooth position

Bad breath

How is the treatment performed?

After carrying out the diagnostic tests to determine the extent of the disease, the tartar is removed by scraping both around the tooth and under the gum.


What is the result of the treatment?


The outcome is visible from the first moment, similar to when we have a deep dental clean; cleaner teeth, almost total reduction of bleeding and pain caused by inflammation… In short, the result is a healthy, happy mouth!

What recovery time do I need in Spain?
