Scaling & Root Planing
When is Scaling & Root Planing Necessary?
Bacteria grows when tartar and plaque accumulate on the teeth. This can lead to gingivitis and other dental issues. This is where dental scaling and root planing is needed.
Deep scaling and root planing is often the chosen course of treatment for addressing periodontal (gum) disease. The periodontal scaling treatment removes tartar and plaque and precipitates improved healing of the gums.
Our team of dental specialists identifies any unhealthy condition of your gums (periodontal disease). They evaluate the gums and recommend a treatment plan which may include deep scaling, root planing, and continuing periodontal therapy to remove plaque and bacteria from under your gums. The periodontal scaling treatment eradicates the deposits from tooth and root surfaces, and planing smooths the surfaces to allow gums to heal properly around the cleaned teeth.
If the periodontal disease goes untreated, the bacteria below the gum line can cause permanent damage to the gums, teeth, bones and connective tissue. This could lead to adult tooth loss.
One of the best ways to help prevent periodontal disease is to schedule routine examinations and cleanings with a dentist. Find a location near you and call us today to schedule a cleaning or evaluation.
