One of the most popular and successful treatments for gum disease that is advised before it becomes severe is scaling and root planing. There are two primary steps in this deep cleaning procedure:

  • Scaling: In scaling, we remove plaque and tartar (dental calculus) from the tooth surface.
  • Root Planing: This step involves cleaning the roots of the teeth, smoothing them to remove bacterial toxins.
Scaling and root planing work to get rid of germs, plaque, and tartar while also stopping the spread of the disease. Despite the fact that the majority of scaling and root planing procedures may be comfortably accomplished without anesthetic, our dentists can provide a variety of anesthetic and other comfort alternatives to make sure you feel at peace throughout your treatment. The scaling and root planing procedure may be divided into numerous appointments, with each appointment focusing on a different area of the mouth.

Scaling and root planing can be used in conjunction with other periodontal therapies, like antibiotic therapy. Scaling and root planing is sufficient for the majority of patients to stop the spread of periodontal disease. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office if you have any questions about the advantages of scaling and root planing or any of the other periodontal treatments we provide.
