Scaling & Root Planing

Home  /  General Dentistry  /  Scaling & Root Planing

It’s a common misconception that scaling/professional cleaning makes our teeth loose or damaged. In fact, the reason our teeth become loose (mobile) is because proper preventative measures like scaling were not performed in a timely manner. Another common misconception is that as we age we loose our teeth... NO NO NO ... that’s totally wrong... Our teeth should stay with us as long as we live. When we see blood coming out of any part of our body, we get paranoid and rush to the doctor...So why is bleeding from gums taken so lightly? It is equally and even more dangerous to have bleeding gums than bleeding from any other part of the body. Bleeding gums is a sign of serious oral disease called gingivitis(inflamed gums) and can progress to periodontitis (gum disease leading to bone loss around teeth which is not reversible) and eventually results in loss of teeth. The bacteria in periodontal disease are known to cause Heart Attacks, Strokes, Miscarriages, and Premature Birth Rates.
