Take Two Steps to Improve Your Oral Health
As common as gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis are, many times they can be treated with a simple two-step procedure. We can do this deep cleaning process in our office as part of our restorative dentistry.
- Scaling – During this first step, we remove plaque and tartar from below your gums and the roots of your teeth. This plaque and tartar buildup is what causes the irritation of your gum tissue.
- Root planing – In the second step, we smooth the surface of your roots. This makes it more difficult for bacteria to attach to your teeth. It also helps your gums and teeth reattach to one another.
Our sedation options can keep you calm and pain-free during this treatment. For more serious cases of gum disease, we can refer you to a trusted periodontist.
Save Your Smile by Treating Gum Disease
Symptoms of gum disease can include bleeding gums, gums that look red or swollen, and lingering bad breath. Ignoring these signs can lead to tooth loss and increase your risk of other health issues. Regular dental cleanings and exams can reduce your risk of gum infections. They also give our team of dental professionals an opportunity to find problems early, when treatments are easier and more effective.
