Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease can be incredibly damaging to your overall oral health. If it’s a problem that gets ignored, it will just grow and cause even more avoidable problems. Scaling and root planing is used to combat forms of gum disease when they’re still in their early stages.
Scaling and Root Planing is all about cleansing the teeth in a more extensive way than usual so that the roots are not left to become damaged by unhelpful bacteria.
When you’re brushing your teeth at home, this is something that can’t be done. We use the best methods to make the roots of your teeth cleaner and healthier than they’ve been for a long time, and that has long-term benefits for your oral health in general.
One of the things that’s very important is the maintenance of good dental hygiene after the scaling and root planing procedures have been completed.
If good dental hygiene if not maintained, the benefit of these procedures will be significantly dulled. We can provide you with the right guidance to ensure that you are able to keep your teeth and gums as clean and as healthy as they possibly can be in the weeks and months that follow the procedures.
