Why Gum Disease Shouldn’t Be Ignored

Gum disease is mostly annoying in its initial stages, but over time, it can lead to loose teeth and even tooth loss. It has also been shown to be strongly correlated with more serious ailments like heart disease, diabetes, and even dementia. That’s why it’s so important to treat it right away—the consequences down the road are pretty dire!

Scaling & Root Planing

The source of gum infection is usually a buildup of bacterial plaque below the gumline on the roots of the teeth. Scaling remedies this by allowing our team to remove this plaque, and then root planing involves smoothing out the rough surfaces where the buildup accumulated. This helps you avoid future problems while also accelerating the healing process by enabling your gums to firmly reattach themselves to your teeth (which is important for keeping them stable).
