Keep Your Smile Healthy and Beautiful with Periodontal SRP

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, afflicts millions yearly. Sadly, most do not seek treatment, often leading to dire health consequences. Thankfully, SRP is an effective treatment of periodontal disease offered at The Hope Dental Care Centre, where Dr. Far, and Gang Wang, are skilled in areas such as SRP periodontal treatment, deep cleaning teeth services, and non-surgical periodontal treatment.

The Progression of Periodontal (Gum) Disease

Periodontal disease is a common condition that manifests as sore and swollen gums. Plaque is the main culprit behind the disease as harmful bacteria, which form after we eat and drink, accumulate in pockets beneath our gums.

During the initial stage of gum disease, patients develop gingivitis. Common symptoms at this stage involve lousy breath and bleeding gums. However, if gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance into periodontitis, a disease that begins attacking the bone tissue in your jaw, causing decay and minor cavities to form between your gum and teeth leading to eventual tooth loss.

Harm Beyond Teeth

However, periodontal disease doesn’t stop at just our teeth. If left untreated, the infection goes through your bloodstream and settles in major organs such as your brain and heart, contributing to various illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.

How Can I Stop Periodontal Disease?

Your best weapon against periodontal disease is maintaining good daily oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. With early detection, Drs. Farkhondeh, and Wang, can resolve gum disease during its earliest stages when it’s much easier to treat with treatments that are far less invasive (and less expensive) than those used to treat advanced gum disease.They will take the time to understand your unique medical history and diagnose treatments such as scaling and root planing (SRP). Also called root surface debridement, this procedure removes damaged tissue to stop the spread of infection, possibly making more invasive surgical measures unnecessary.
