    Scaling and Root Planing

    Inconveniences of the disease

    • Toxins or poisons produced by bacteria in the plaque irritate the gums and destroy supporting tissues around the teeth, forming pockets.  A sticky, colorless that constantly forms on your teeth results from calculus and bacteria forming deposits under the gums.
    • Gums bleed when a person brushes and flosses.
    • The mouth and gums are puffy and red.
    • Gums continue to pull away from the teeth.
    • Gum and bone attachment to the teeth are lost and pockets deepen.
    • Affected teeth can become loose and eventually may be lost.
    • Persistent bad breath.

    Advantages of treatment

    • Removing the hard deposits below the gum line and cleaning out the pockets.
    • The teeth are cleaner.
    • Reduces the disease activities locally and systemically.
    • Reduces teeth decay.
    • Reduces movement and shakiness of the teeth.
    • Decreases bleeding and inflammation if present.
    • Correct or improve a periodontal problem that is affecting your oral health and physical health.
