The initial stage of periodontal treatment is often a thorough "deep cleaning", or scaling and root planing (SRP). This non-surgical procedure removes dental plaque and tartar below the gum line.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies is resorbed.
When recession of the gingiva (gum tissue) occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trama.
