Gum Therapy (or Scaling and Root Planing (SRP)) – is the most effective way to treat gum disease. During SRP, the dentist cleans between the gums and teeth, down to the root. Your dentist may need to use local anesthetic to numb the gums and the roots of your teeth while the procedure is performed. It is important that individuals with gum (periodontal) disease have this procedure done.
What is Gum (Periodontal) Disease?
Gum disease (also called periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it.
If you notice any of the following signs of gum disease, see your dentist immediately:
- New spacing between teeth (caused by bone loss)
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums (loss of gum around a tooth)
- Tenderness or Discomfort
- Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth
- Red, swollen or tender gums
- Bad breath that doesn’t go away
