What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease occurs when the gums separate from the teeth due to bacteria or infection of the soft tissues. Pockets then begin to form between the teeth and the gums that can become infected. Gum disease can lead to symptoms such as red, swollen gums, bad breath, toothaches, tender gums, loose teeth and even tooth loss. Left untreated, gum disease can cause serious damage to your oral and overall health. By consistently visiting your dentist, early signs of gum disease can be discovered and addressed right away.
Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a two-step treatment that helps reverse the symptoms of early gum disease. Scaling works by removing plaque and tartar buildup that is below and above the gumline. Root planing smooths the roots and helps the gums reattach to the roots of the teeth. This treatment is commonly recommended for gum disease and can help address the gum infection before it progresses to periodontitis.
