Periodontal (Gum Disease) Treatment
Scaling and root planing is a technique used to treat periodontal (gum) disease and prevent the advancement of the disease which leads to tooth loss. It is a deep cleaning that clears the mouth of harmful bacteria.
It is important not to ignore gum disease. Periodontal disease has been linked to several health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Gum disease may cause puffy, red or bleeding gums, but the bacteria may be present without these symptoms.
