Scaling & Planning
From Painful to Pristine.
This young man came to our office in serious pain. It was finals season at his high school, so he was under pressure. He was also malnourished and chain smoking–a lethal trio! He had Acute Necrotizing Ulcerative Periodontitis, a severe type of gum disease brought on by a weak immune system and stress. After completing a full-mouth scaling and root planing you can see that even one week later his tissue are so much healthier. His pain was gone and he even passed his final exams!
Healthier gums know no age limit.
Our patient was 91, with gold teeth surrounded by deep pockets where bacteria could thrive. Through osseous surgery, we were able to reduce pocket size for improved periodontal health and reduced inflammation.
