Gum Disease and Treatments
Scaling and Root Planing
Healthy gums hug your teeth nice and tight. As gum disease advances from gingivitis to periodontitis, your gums loosen to get away from the toxins in the plaque and calculus (tartar). This allows bacteria to travel even farther below the gumline. When you get to that point, you need a deep cleaning.
Perio Daily Defense
The first sign of gum disease is gingivitis: red, swollen gums that bleed easily. If you do not treat, gums pull away from your teeth, creating pockets that collect even more bacteria. At StoneCreek Dental Care, we offer Perio Daily Defense as a daily, in-home gum treatment that helps your body fight off the bacteria so that your gums can heal.
