Trucare dentistry provides treatment of gum disease in form of routine dental cleaning, scaling and root planning also known as deep cleaning followed by periodontal maintenance or gum surgery. We provide periodontal care to prevent you from loosing teeth from periodontal disease.

There are two primary stages of gum disease:

1. Gingivitis

Everyone’s mouth contains bacteria that cause gum disease. With regular checkups and good daily oral hygiene, it’s possible to keep gums healthy. Since early gum disease symptoms are often mild, many people are not aware of their condition until it becomes more serious.

Bacterial plaque is the root of the problem

Over time, a film (plaque) builds up on your teeth. A primary cause of tooth decay, plaque is a sticky substance made of bacteria, mucus, and food on the exposed parts of your teeth. Over time, plaque can harden and become trapped at the base of the tooth.

A buildup can lead to gum infection

Once plaque hardens on your teeth, it’s known as tartar or calculus. Plaque and tartar can harm your gums if they are not removed. This can lead to inflamed and infected gums, also known as gingivitis.

Left untreated, gum disease may progress

The infection can create deep pockets (spaces) or cause your gums to recede or pull back. This exposes the roots of your teeth and allows bacteria to grow above and below the gumline. Over time, the bones, gums, and connective tissue that support the teeth are destroyed. Eventually, teeth can become loose and may need to be removed.

Treatment for Gingivitis

Prophylactic dental cleanings and proper home care helps in treating gingivitis. It involves removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time.

Treatment with Scaling and Root Planing

In the early stages of periodontitis scaling and root, planing is performed. In this procedure, an ultrasonic cleaning device is used to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth where regular cleaning devices can’t reach which is performed under anesthesia. Then the rough surface of the tooth and the root are smoothed out (planed). This provides a healthy, clean surface that makes it easier for the gum tissue to reattach to the tooth.

If you address your gum disease before it becomes severe, scaling and root planing may be the only treatment you need.
