Periodontal Therapy – Lincoln, NE

Woman with healhty teeth and gums after periodontal therapyWhat is periodontal therapy? Periodontal therapy starts with the scaling, root planing, and careful cleaning of your tooth root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep inside periodontal pockets (the spaces between your gums and teeth). Scaling and root planing periodontal therapy in our Lincoln, NE dental office is essential to maintaining your tooth and gum health.

When Would I Need Periodontal Therapy?

Healthy gums are firm and pale pink in color. If your gums are puffy, red, bleed easily, or show any of the following signs of gum disease, you should make an immediate periodontal therapy appointment:

  • Swollen gums
  • Bright red or purplish gums
  • Tender or sensitive gums
  • Receding gum line
  • Gaps or spaces developing between your teeth
  • Pus between teeth and gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Constant bad taste in the mouth
  • Loosened or wiggly teeth
  • A change in your bite

Scaling & Root Planing

When caught early on during the first stage of development (called gingivitis), the bacteria that cause gum or periodontal disease can be kept under control with a normal professional teeth cleaning. However, more advanced cases require extra thorough treatment to fight off the infection. That’s where scaling and root planing come in. We go deep below the gum line to make sure that plaque and bacteria are completely cleared out and to prevent gum disease from happening again down the road.
