Symptoms of Gum Disease

If you have gum disease, your gum tissue may bleed more easily, and it could become sore and swollen. You may also develop bad breath that refuses to go away no matter what you try, and over time your gums may start to recede and make your teeth look longer. However, you may not notice any symptoms at all while your gum disease is still in its earliest stages. As such, you should visit our dental team twice a year; we can check for any warning signs of gum disease that you might not have been aware of.

Scaling & Root Planing

When your gum disease has reached a certain point, we may suggest scaling and root planing. The scaling step is where we focus on cleaning the area around and beneath your gums (particularly the pockets that have appeared between the gum tissue and the teeth). Any plaque and tartar that we find will be gently removed. Then we will move on to the root planing step, which involves making the roots of the teeth smoother to aid in the reattachment of the gum tissue.
