How do I Know if I Have Gum Disease?
Some patients may not show any signs or symptoms of gum disease until after damage has already occurred, so regular oral exams are important.
You may be experiencing gingivitis, the earliest stages of periodontal disease, if you notice red, swollen, or bleeding gums. As the disease progresses, other symptoms that may occur include:
- Loose teeth
- Gum recession
- Sensitive gums
- Tooth loss
- Bone loss
At Dr.Nina Dental Clinic, our goal is to provide our patients with safe, effective treatments and the most comfortable experience possible. Depending on the stage of gum disease you are diagnosed with, we will recommend an appropriate method for improving your oral health.
Scaling and Planing
Scaling and root planing is non-surgical removal of tartar and plaque deep within the gums. After the plaque and tartar have been removed, the tooth roots will be smoothed in an effort to reduce the amount of future tartar and plaque that can attach to them.
