Characterized by a persistent bacterial infection surrounding one tooth (or several), gum disease causes little discomfort and produces few obvious symptoms in the early stages. When periodontal disease is not treated, it will spread and compromise the gums, teeth, and bone. It can also lead to heart disease and strokes, as well as diabetes and pregnancy complications.

Scaling & Root Planing

To prevent advanced gum disease from progressing, we’ll need to remove the harmful bacteria that has built up around and beneath the gum line. Typically, this entails a two-pronged procedure known as scaling and root planing. First, we use specialized dental instruments to clear away the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth. Then, we smooth out the rough, exposed surfaces of your tooth roots, which prompts your gums to reattach to your teeth while making it more difficult for bacteria to adhere to these surfaces in the future.
