Periodontal disease is an inflammation of the tissues surrounding teeth, characterized by swollen gums and deep gum pockets. At Midtown Dental Centre, our periodontal disease treatment involves scaling and root planing.
First, we thoroughly clean teeth by scraping off tartar deposits, then smooth the exposed roots and remove the dentin containing tartar that caused the inflammation. This may be done at least twice to ensure gum health is completely restored.
Your teeth and gums can 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 they are detected, the higher chance of reversing the effects and avoiding tooth loss or gum recession.
