Stop Gum Disease In Its Tracks
Out of all the chronic conditions that exist within dentistry, gum disease is by far one of the most harmful for a number of reasons. For one, gum disease largely goes undiagnosed because the symptoms are not easy to catch in their earliest stages. As a result, a majority of U.S. adults have some level of periodontitis, the more severe form of gum disease. If you notice bleeding, swelling, or gum recession, don’t wait to get the treatment you need. Contact our dental office to schedule an appointment!

Scaling & Root Planing
When gum disease has progressed past the stage of gingivitis, professional intervention is needed in order to break up and remove harmful plaque above and beneath the gum line. This is done through a common procedure known as scaling and root planing. Scaling is the process of removing plaque from areas not typically accessible via traditional brushing, flossing, or professional cleanings. This works to prevent future damage of gum tissue. Root planing is the process of smoothing out the tooth roots to promote healthy reattachment to the gums.
