Expressions Dental Care in Richmond Hill provides non-surgical gum therapy for treatment of gum disease.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It's typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque – a sticky film of bacteria – to build up on the teeth and harden. In advanced stages, gum (periodontal) disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums, painful chewing problems, and even tooth loss.
Scaling and root planning is a nonsurgical treatment for gum disease and involves removing the calculus or tartar build-up from the teeth above and below the gum line.
