Periodontal disease is an inflammation of the tissues surrounding the teeth. It is characterized by swollen gums and deep gum pockets.
Our periodontal disease treatment involves scaling and root planing. First, our dental hygienist deeply cleans the teeth by scraping off tartar deposits in between the teeth and below the gum line. Then they smoothen the exposed roots and remove the dentin containing tartar that caused the inflammation. This deep dental cleaning may be done at least twice to ensure the patient’s gum health is completely restored.
Your teeth and gums are naturally bund to last a lifetime, so it is critical to keep a high level of oral care regimen. Symptoms such as swollen or receding gums and even sensitive teeth should not be ignored. The sooner it is detected, the higher chance of reversing its effects such as tooth loss and gum recession.
