Scaling & Root Planing (“Deep Cleanings”)
The buildup of bacteria on your gums, leads to an infection called Periodontitis; this lead to bone loss, and eventually the loss of teeth. With this procedure, we remove the bacterial colonies deep in your gums, and halt the progression of periodontal disease. Gum disease is the number one leading cause of tooth loss. Pain is usually not the first sign of gum disease, bleedings gums are! The easiest way to treat this disease is to manage the problem BEFORE permanent and irreversible bone loss occurs.
