Scaling or root planing

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: kamtx95  (2 years ago)
I have a periodontitis. Three weeks ago, I had scaling and root planing done. Everything was fine after the procedure until recently, I felt tightness and pressure on my teeth. They were also painful. The gum around my lower right first molar bleeds after I brush and floss it. I never bled before my treatment. It’s also slightly wiggly and my gum feels irritated. Are these normal after deep cleaning or did the periodontist not clean enough? Please help. Thanks.

Every one in a great while, especially in women or diabetics, there is granulation tissue that grows up from the base of the pocket and bleeds profusely after scaling. Usually I use electrosurgery to remove it. A laser can also be used. Have your dentist check it out.
