Scaling and Root Planing in Temple City, CA

What is gum disease?
Periodontal (gum) diseases can lead to infections and inflammation of the gums and bone that are surrounding and supporting the teeth. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, where the gums can turn into a red color, become swollen, and bleed. Periodontitis is the more advanced stage of gum disease, and can cause damage to gum tissue, teeth, bone, where the teeth may loosen or even fall out.

Why deep cleaning?
A deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, consists of cleaning out your gum pockets and the roots of your teeth to remove bacterial deposits that cannot be removed with a toothbrush, floss, or other home care methods. This is done to help reduce inflammation.
