The Dangers of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease affects about half of American adults. The two main risk factors for gum disease are inadequate dental hygiene, and genetic factors. Periodontal disease, when left unchecked, can be very destructive to your oral health. Those with  periodontitis are at risk of gum recession, bone loss and eventually  tooth loss. So it’s important that even at the earliest signs of gum disease, you visit your dentist promptly.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Disease Treatment

-Root Planing and Scaling: Root planing and scaling is the process of deep cleaning your teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, and thus bacteria that might otherwise lead to early stages of periodontal disease. Root planing is the process of cleaning out plaque and tartar on the root of the tooth.  It removes the toxins that have accumulated on the porous root surface below the gum line.

Regular Checkups and Cleanings: In conjunction with proper hygiene, it’s important to visit your dentist for frequent professional checkups and cleanings. Your dentist can make sure you’re on the right track in avoiding periodontal disease
