Dr. William S. Neale, a dental specialist in periodontal disease, will tell anyone a build-up of plaque and tarter on the gums is a recipe for causal health problems. That’s in addition to what a build-up can do to your teeth.
A build-up of plaque and tartar gives one a prognosis for periodontal disease. Unfortunately, about 50% of the United States’ population has reached the stage where periodontal disease has developed.
Periodontal disease is the stage in gum and tooth disease following Gingivitis. Everyone probably knows about Gingivitis. Periodontal disease, which is much more serious, hides deep, down in our gums. It may not be so well known.
It’s out of sight, out of mind. Periodontal disease can destroy the bony structures holding the teeth and the teeth themselves. It’s also a causal factor in many other serious medical conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes.
What to Do?
First and foremost, visit Dr. William S. Neale, your local periodontist in Wichita Falls, Texas. At a minimum visit annually for a checkup. That ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you’re part of the 50% who’ve entered the phase of plaque and tarter build-up, periodontal scaling and planing are treatments which can help you. It will return your smile to the smile it should be.
Periodontal Scaling is what Dr. Neale, your periodontal specialist, will do to remove the plaque and tarter build-up surrounding your teeth. It’s a good cleaning along and below the gum line. It cleans up what can be seen and felt. It doesn’t get down to the roots, a deeper problem.
As periodontal disease progresses, toxins build on the root surfaces. This is where Dr. William S. Neale uses his treatment called root planing.
Root planing is a specialty treatment using a laser to remove any build-up around the roots. It’s somewhat like a doctor cleaning out a wound. Its purpose is to remove the infected material and to promote healing.
Periodontal scaling and root planing are two critical treatments provided by Dr. William S. Neale, your periodontal specialist in Wichita Falls, Texas. These treatments are equated as a pound of cure. A regular annual checkup is an ounce of prevention.
