Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition that can afflict your gums and eventually lead to tooth and bone loss. It is an infection of your gums and soft tissues caused by rapidly growing bacteria. Beginning as gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, gum disease can progress quickly if left untreated.

Scaling & Root Planing
In order to stop the infection of your gum tissue from spreading, Dr. Rouhani performs scaling and root planing treatment. Scaling is the process of breaking down plaque from above and below the gumline, the latter of which is not removable through at-home means. In fact, even a basic cleaning is not enough to effectively remove all of it. This is followed by root planing, which works to promote reattachment of the tooth roots to the gums and reduces gum recession.
Most periodontal therapy cannot be done in a single appointment. This is because the gums require healing before they can be fully restored. That’s why we always ask our patients to come in to the dental office every three to four months to not only complete treatment but specifically confirm that therapy is working. We’ll make adjustments to the treatment as we go in order to get you out of discomfort and stop gum disease in its tracks.
