Gums and other structures in the mouth that support the teeth require regular upkeep to promote wellness and keep teeth strong. Healthy teeth and gums make up a vital part of whole-body wellness; when your teeth are strong, so are you.

At Bright Tiger Dental – South Euclid, we know the importance of preventing and treating gum disease with regular dental checkups and restorative procedures. Our technicians provide periodontal treatment with a professional and friendly touch.

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth decay and tooth loss in adults.

Gum disease begins when bacteria known as plaque builds up on and around teeth. Plaque causes damage and decay, resulting in inflamed or swollen gums. When left unchecked, plaque and tartar buildup leads to gingivitis. Gingivitis is a precursor for gum disease and contributes to many dental and other health issues.

Fortunately, a skilled dentist can provide periodontal treatment to prevent or manage gum disease. Procedures such as scaling and root planing help remove plaque buildup and restore gum health.

Benefits of Root Scaling and Planing

The primary benefit of regular dental checkups and cleanings is longer-lasting dental and gum health. Visits to the dentist provide active aid in preventing plaque buildup, which prevents or manages the advancement of gum disease.

When necessary, a dentist will go beyond basic tooth cleaning and provide scaling and root planning treatment. Scaling refers to when a dentist removes hard plaque and tartar buildup above and below the gum line.

If buildup has extended far beneath the gum line, root planing will help reduce gum pockets. Root planing smooths the surface of the tooth to allow the gum to heal properly.

Professional scaling and root planing offer significant benefits for slowing the advancement of gum disease.

These procedures:

  • Reduce tooth decay
  • Allow gums to heal and adhere to teeth
  • Slow the progression of gum disease
  • Reduce damage to the tissue and bone that support the teeth
  • Improve overall dental health
