Routine exam of the gums to prevent gum disease.

Scaling and Root Planing in Portland, OR

Periodontal Disease (Periodontitis) is the result of a gum infection in which bacteria invades and damage below your gum.  If periodontal disease is left untreated, it can damage the jaw and result in loosening and even loss of teeth. Periodontal disease is also associated with a great number of systemic illness including cardiovascular and Alzheimer’s Disease.

 Scaling and root planing, commonly refered to as “deep cleaning” is the first-line of defense to treat active Periodontal Disease.  This is a painless procedure in which the hygienists use instruments to remove the calcified bacteria deposits beneath your gums so your gum can begin to heal. Call our office at (503) 777-2284 to schedule your deep cleaning.
