Deep Clean With Scaling And Root Planing

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Evan Admin
Deep Clean With Scaling And Root PlaningFor patients who have gum disease, the most effective method of treating periodontitis is by removing hard-to-reach tartar through a process known as scaling and root planing. It is a procedure that targets deep periodontal pockets where buildup below the gums is removed. Gum pockets, if left untreated, can deepen and lead to bone loss. They can harm the integrity of the tooth roots. Luckily, toot planing treatment helps save your smile. Dental professionals are able to halt further development of gum disease by cleaning out the periodontal pockets. And the procedure does not just benefit your oral health but also your overall general health.

Scaling and Root Planing

Unless root planing and scaling are performed in time, your overall health is likely to suffer due to chronic gum disease. A dentist prescribes scaling and root planing to target bacteria that cause infection. Often, the dentist wants to remove plaque and tartar occurring below the gums. Scaling and root planing is an in-depth deep cleaning process. During the scaling procedure, the periodontist cleans each tooth thoroughly to remove the soft and hard buildups. The tooth roots below the gum lines are specifically targeted. Deep cleaning involves the use of a numbing agent to ensure comfort.

As a non-surgical treatment, root planing and scaling are preferred as the first intervention in managing and treating active periodontal disease. When the gum disease treatment is completed early, it helps delay the spread of bacteria to other areas of the body.

Root planing and scaling help the detached gums to reattach by introducing a clean environment. It is a must-have treatment if you have severely infected gums or are showing signs of bone loss. It targets deep infection surrounding your root surfaces. Find out more about this procedure by contacting our periodontics team. Set up your appointment today for a consultation.
