In terms of dental health, your gums are just as important as your teeth.
That’s why it’s very important to prevent and treat gum disease, which is caused by heavy plaque and tartar buildup. Over time, plaque causes gums to become inflamed and bleed easily, which is a condition called gingivitis. Untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontal disease, causing gums to pull away from the teeth. Painful pockets of disease can then destroy bones, gums and mouth tissue.
To treat gingivitis and prevent serious and painful conditions of the gums, Emergency Dental Care USA provides periodontal scaling and root planing treatment locally. Periodontal scaling (also known as gum scaling or a “deep cleaning”) is a procedure that’s used to treat gum disease by removing built-up plaque from your teeth. This can be accomplished traditionally or with a laser or ultrasonic device, and reduces your chances of losing teeth, bone, or tissue. It’s an important step in preserving your overall oral health in the long run.
