Flossing your teeth and cleaning along the gumline once a day is an important element of your daily oral hygiene routine. If you are lax in performing this basic measure, stray food particles and bacterial plaque can start to build up near the base of your teeth.

In time these substances can harden into tartar at the gumline and near the roots of your teeth. Also known as calculus this bacterial material can promote the periodontal inflammation and potential infection of gum disease.

If you struggle with chronic gum disease problems, Dr. Frank Pettisani and his associates might recommend a root planning treatment.

This comprehensive dental cleaning can be performed in a single outpatient appointment. It involves Dr. Frank Pettisani using special tools to clean the roots and dental structures deep within your periodontal tissues.

Removing hardened tartar from these areas can help reduce periodontal inflammation before more significant gum health complications arise.

Going forward you will need to practice increased focus in your daily oral hygiene routine. This consists of brushing twice and thoroughly flossing your teeth at least once each day. Make sure to thoroughly floss between each of your teeth, and into the gumline as well as behind each of your rear molars.
