Soft Tissue Care Mission Valley

What is gum disease?

There are two primary types of gum disease, or periodontal disease. The first is gingivitis.

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum, also known as gingiva. Gingivitis is a reversable condition. However, if left untreated, it can lead to a more serious condition called periodontitis. Periodontitis is a gum infection that can seriously damage the soft tissue and the supporting bone structure of your teeth. While there is no cure to periodontitis, it can be managed and prevented if caught early.

What is soft tissue care?

Soft tissue care consists of various dental techniques to help restore gums to a healthy state.

It also includes a tailored plan for proper at-home care. In more serious cases of gum disease, we may do scaling and root planing. Contact our office today for your first consultation, and we’ll come up with a tailored plan to get your gum health back on track. With our soft tissue care in Mission Valley, you can experience greatly improved gum health.


Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling is a technique in which all of the plaque, tartar, and buildup is removed from the tooth and below the gumline.

Once your teeth are cleaned, the next step is root planing. Root planing is the smoothing out of the roots of your teeth. This is done to help encourage your gums to reattach to your teeth. For scaling and planing, a local anesthetic may be used to relieve any pain. As always, our dental team is here for you to make your treatment as smooth and worry-free as possible.
