scaling and root planingBesides your teeth, your gums are vital to a healthy smile. They provide your teeth with the support they need to stay in place while sealing out bacteria from your oral structures. Unfortunately, the biggest threat to the health of your gums is an infection that affects roughly 50% of adults. Gum (periodontal) disease results from an infection caused by tartar accumulations. Over time, it destroys the supporting structures for your teeth, leading to tooth loss. It can also enter your bloodstream, causing an array of general health concerns. Gum therapy is necessary to stop the spread of the infection. Often, your dentist recommends scaling and root planing to save your smile.
