Gum Disease Therapy in Norman, Oklahoma
Gum disease is one of the trickiest aspects to oral health. It can strike silently and many people don’t realize that they have some form of gum disease. When you come into your Norman, Oklahoma, dentist at Rose Rock Dental, we will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth to prevent some of this gum disease.
When plaque builds up, it becomes tartar. Tartar is a rough mineral that builds up on the teeth and has a brown or yellow appearance to it and forms around and underneath your gumlines. This tartar in your mouth releases toxins that cause gum inflammation that can lead to more bacteria and toxins into your gums.
If you have red, inflamed gums, bleeding while flossing or brushing, receding gums, or pus in between the teeth and gums, you may need to see a dentist at Rose Rock Dental to fix this problem.
If caught early enough, a routine cleaning can usually help get this plaque away. In more severe cases, the patient will need more in-depth cleaning. Your Rose Rock dentist in Norman, Oklahoma, will scrape the tartar away and smooth any rough spots on your teeth. For more serious and the most severe cases, surgery may be needed to fix the gum disease.
