Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease Should Not Be Ignored

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but if you have been ignoring your bleeding gums, your gingivitis could progress to the more serious periodontal disease.

According to Dr. Julie Storm from Timberview Family Dentistry in Midwest City Center, swollen, red gums are a sign of gum disease. If your gums are irritated when you brush and floss, it’s time to schedule an appointment for a professional cleaning from your dentist in Midwest City Center. A dental hygienist will examine your teeth to determine if you require a deep cleaning, if she recommends it, the team from TVF Dentistry will perform a root scaling and planing to get rid of the hard build up of tartar that has accumulated between the roots of your teeth and the plaque that on the surfaces of your teeth.

What is Root Planing and Scaling?

Root Planing and Scaling is used to treat periodontal disease. Otherwise known as periodontitis, this disease could be chronic and untreatable if not addressed in its earliest stages.

The Procedure

During the treatment, you may or may not require an anesthetic, and dependant on the severity of your periodontal disease. Dr. Julie Storm may decide to do each quadrant at a separate appointment to alleviate some of the discomfort.

The root planing and scaling treatment removes the unhealthy pockets of plaque and tartar that accumulate under and around the roots of your teeth and in between your gums. If you have over 4mm or more of pocket depth, you could be suffering from advanced periodontal disease.

Advanced Periodontal Symptoms

  • Bad breath
  • Large pockets between the roots of your teeth and your gums
  • Heavy tartar build up in and around your teeth and between your teeth

During the procedure, the team from Timberview Family Dentistry will carefully scale the plaque removing bacteria and harmful tartar from the root surfaces of your teeth and the teeth themselves. The root planing is used to smooth out any rough areas on the surfaces of your teeth and the roots. This also prevents plaque and tartar from reattaching itself in between your teeth and gum line. This allows your teeth to heal. Sometimes a medication is placed in the pockets to help heal.

If you believe you may be suffering from gingivitis or periodontal disease, call or click and schedule an appointment with Dr. Julie Storm from TVF Dentistry today.
