Gum disease gets its start when improper care is taken in cleaning your teeth and bacteria begins to form on your teeth and gums. In its initial stages, it is known as gingivitis, which can be identified by bleeding, sensitive gums. If gingivitis is allowed to progress into full-blown gum disease, it can lead to receding gums and loss of bone surrounding the teeth, and the loss of the teeth themselves.

Scaling & Root Planing At Oregon Smile Care Center
The most common and effective way to deeply clean your teeth when you’ve been stricken with gum disease is root scaling and planing. This dental treatment will be done in-house and consists of deeply cleaning the roots of the teeth. While its main goal is to stave off an infection of the roots, it also thoroughly cleans in between the teeth and the gums and rids the area of all plaque and tartar.
This procedure is painless because you will be under localized anesthesia while we are deeply cleaning your teeth. This dental treatment is only used when your gum disease has progressed beyond the point of normal cleaning techniques. It will fully reverse the grip that gum disease has on your oral health. At Oregon Smile Care Center, we care about your oral health, and it will show through our gum disease treatments!
Invisalign: Straightening Your Teeth And Fighting Gum Disease
Something that we have found at Oregon Smile Care Center is that our Invisalign patients have not only had straighter teeth, but their gums have been cleaner. The gradual straightening of teeth helps reduce swelling of the gums, while correcting crowded teeth helps eliminate bacteria buildup between those tight spaces. Why not straighten your teeth while you are preventing or fighting gum disease at Oregon Smile Care Center? We want to help you kick your gum disease at Oregon Smile Care Center.
