Fighting Periodontal Disease

Scaling and root planing is a gum disease treatment prescribed for patients with periodontal disease. This procedure is most effective when performed in the early stages. Dr. Jacqueline Subka is a periodontist providing gum disease treatment including scaling and root planing in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Periodontal disease is a severe bacterial infection of the mouth that should be taken very seriously. It is such a pervasive problem in the United States, yet many people are not even aware they have the disease. Periodontal disease, especially in the earlier stages, is not usually painful and you cannot see the pockets that are forming beneath your gum line. If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in bone loss, tooth loss, and can even lead to and exacerbate other serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. Do not delay! Seek gum disease treatment immediately.

Early Treatment of Gum Disease Can Prevent Irrevocable Damage

One of Dr. Subka’s experienced dental hygienists will be able to safely remove the tartar, plaque, and bacteria from above and below the gum line with the scaling and root planing procedure. You will be properly numbed before the procedure to ensure a comfortable visit. Hand tools and ultrasonic instruments are used to remove the buildup and smooth the surfaces of your teeth to encourage tissue reattachment. After your gum disease treatment, you might be prescribed a medicated mouthwash. It is very important that you discontinue smoking and stay vigilant with your home oral care routine to promote healing and to stave off growth of bacteria.
