When looking at how to cure periodontal disease,
which is also known as gum disease we basically prescribe several different sorts of procedures
to help treat periodontal disease. The most common one, and the most frequently encountered
is what’s called scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleanings. By doing deep
cleanings the dentist and hygienist are able to go in and remove any sort of buildup, debris,
and irritating factors that sits not only above the gum lines on the teeth but below
the gum lines on the root surfaces. It’s the combination of both of those areas that enable
the dentist to get rid of all the irritating factors and help resolve the periodontal disease.
By doing that we hope to eliminate some of the redness and inflammation, because ultimately
periodontal disease in its worst form causes extreme bone loss, which can cause loosing,
loosening up of the teeth and premature loss of teeth.
