Gingivitis is a degenerative disease that left untreated, will cause significant tooth and gum deterioration.  Just the word gingivitis can strike panic in a patient’s mind. The reality is that the treatment is simple and performed right in our office.

Plaque and tarter that sits on the teeth provides an environment, which allows bacteria to thrive and multiply.  The bacteria cause the gums to become inflamed and bleed. The condition becomes more noticeable when you brush your teeth or sometimes when you eat. These are signs of the early stage of gingivitis. Gingivitis is easily treated by having our dental professionals scale and polished your teeth.  If gingivitis is left untreated, the condition will progress and you will require scaling and root planing as initial therarpy.

As a non-surgical procedure, scaling and root planing is performed with local anesthesia, in the dentist’s office. Deep scaling and root planing is usually broken down into one section of the mouth per appointment. This allows for adequate healing time, and reduces the time for each appointment.
