Are you suffering from ever advancing levels of gum disease in your mouth? Gingivitis can begin is a harmless irritation the gum lines and soft tissues, but without proper care this small annoyance of occasional gum line bleeding can quickly turn into destructive periodontitis. Without pain or warning, this level of gum disease can cause damage to the gum lines, teeth, and even the bone of your jaws without proper treatment. Fortunately, there are treatments available today that can stop harm from ever coming to your smile. You can find the care you need with root planing and scaling procedures from your local periodontist in Jericho at the offices of Warren Baine, DMD.
Root planing and scaling is one of the most non-invasive yet effective procedures against the damages of periodontitis. But this level of deep cleaning has other uses as well which can work to benefit your oral health and overall health alike. Root planing works to target the source of gum disease by removing plaque and bacteria from your mouth, specifically at the spaces when the roots of your teeth meet the surface of your gum lines. These spaces cannot be reached by brushing and flossing alone, but through root planing they can be free from the substance which work to cause and further the spread of gum disease. This procedure is always followed by scaling. Through scaling your periodontist in Jericho works to smooth out any rough patches on the surface of the teeth to hinder plaque and tartar from taking hold and growing bacteria. Scaling also works to prevent tooth decay, as smooth teeth provide less places for plaque to stick to and wear away at the enamel through their high content of acids against the surface of the teeth. Root planing and scaling not only cleans the teeth, but it also protects them from harm. Periodontal disease exists today as the number one cause for dental loss in the known world, as it works to erode the gum lines and expose the roots of the teeth to damage and eventual destruction. The process involved in root planing and scaling also works to remove stubborn stains on the surface of the teeth, as well as removing the causes of bad breath so you can smile with confidence in a whole new way.
