Non-Surgical Gum Therapy
Gum disease is slow to progress and is generally painless, but it sometimes requires an aggressive treatment. No matter how much you take care of your oral health, it may still not be enough to keep gum disease at bay. Gum disease poses a risk for your entire body as it can lead to various health diseases.
It is quite hard to detect gum disease during its early stages as it does not have very noticeable symptoms. Only when it reaches its advance stages do people realize the possibility that they might be suffering from a periodontal disease. The symptoms of gum disease include persistent bad breath, loose gums, bleeding gums and a reduction in the amount of teeth’s enamel.
The dentists at Beausejour Dental Care perform a thorough periodontal screening and, if gum disease is present, they might suggest a non-surgical gum therapy to reduce the amount of plaque and tartar in and above the gums. Non-surgical gum therapy involves two procedures, scaling and root planing, which can usually be done simultaneously.
Scaling and root planing involves removing plaque and tartar, a white sticky substance that forms inside and above the gum lines. We try our best to provide you with unsurpassed comfort while aiming to restore the healthy smile to your face.
