How to Cure Periodontal Disease

Video transcription

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.
