Deep Cleaning - Root Scaling

When evaluating your oral health, our periodontists seek to treat any areas in need of attention in the most efficient manner. We seek to avoid surgical measures to control cost and prevent invasive procedures when possible. non surgical gum treatment

Non-surgical periodontal treatments include a professional dental cleaning along with scaling and root planing. Most patients refer to this procedure as deep cleaning.

A professional dental cleaning allows your dentist to remove plaque and tartar that has built up above and below the gum line. A professional dental cleaning is generally performed during your general checkup. Scaling and root planing are additional non-surgical procedures for removing hardened plaque and tartar from the mouth. This second procedure targets deeper pockets affected by bacterial buildup.

Performed under local anesthesia, your perdiodontist will scrap clean affected areas above and below the gum line (scaling) and will smooth the root of any hardened bacteria (planing). In some cases, additional microbial therapy is required to effectively treat any contaminated areas. Both of these procedures target the bacteria that if left untreated, can produce acids that eat away at your teeth leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
