Scaling and Root Planing

Sensitivity problems? Often due to...

Root exposure when recession of the gums occur. Our roots are not covered by enamel so they are not as protected.
Constant acid exposure wears away enamel and will cause sensitivity.
Grinding of teeth wears away enamel exposing underlying dentition.

I can apply a product to "desensitize" exposed roots alleviating most sensitivity. Results from an x-ray will allow us to see if the sensitivity is more involved and in this case you may need to be referred to a dentist.

Did YOU know...

Gum disease is a condition caused by the build up of plaque bacteria that causes infections. This plaque hardens into "tartar" which can only be removed by a professional cleaning.

Early stage is gingivitis and is easy to treat. Most people have some areas of gingivitis. Here are the signs: red, swollen and often tender gums that bleed easily when brushed or flossed. Scaling and root planing (teeth cleaning) followed by good home care ie. proper brushing, flossing and rinsing is the answer to prevention.

If gingivitis is not treated the next stage is periodontitis. This affects the structures, soft and hard tissue, that surround and support the teeth. When these structures weaken and deteriorate teeth become loose. Not all gingivitis necessarily progresses to periodontitis. The tissue just stays in a constant state of inflammation. This is not a healthy state.

Gum disease is the leading causes of tooth loss in adults and it is NOT a part of the aging process.
