Periodontitis is a Periodontal disease. Plaque is always forming on your teeth, but if they aren’t cleaned well, the bacteria in plaque can cause your gums to become inflamed. When this happens, your gums will pull away from your teeth and form spaces called pockets. Plaque then gets trapped in these pockets and cannot be removed with regular brushing. If left untreated, gum disease could lead to bone and tooth loss.
To avoid tooth loss call us and book an appointment for scaling and root planning for a patient having periodontal pockets. Anesthesia is used because this a process of deep cleaning of teeth and can be painful. Our specialist removes all bacteria and tart from the gum pockets and you get rid of inflammation. This helps in preventing the destruction of bones and gums.
