Periodontal disease is a common affliction that causes inflammation and infection in your gums. It begins as pockets form when bacteria grows, pulling your gums away from your teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth and bone loss. Thankfully, Dr. Dhillon offers many different types of gum treatment in Ware, MA. One of the most common gum treatments is scaling and root planing.
What is Scaling and Root Planing?
Scaling and root planing are both deep cleaning methods and are always used together. Scaling is the process by which we remove built-up plaque, tartar, and infection from above and below your gumline. Root planing is when we smooth the rough spots on your tooth and tooth roots where bacteria and infection tend to linger and fester. Together, we are able to use scaling and root planing to restore the health of your gums and smile. If you are experiencing signs of gum disease and would like more information about our treatment options, please contact us at Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today. Our dental team is eager to help your smile in any way we can.
