Scaling And Root Planing

Scaling And Root Planing

  • Scaling and root planing, also called as deep cleaning is a treatment used to treat periodontal (gum) diseases.
  • Scaling involves thoroughly removing all the plaque, bacterial toxins and tartar deposits from teeth and root surfaces and then root planing, which smoothes all rough areas on root surfaces. Smooth root surfaces keep bacteria, plaque and tartar from re-adhering underneath the gumline, allowing gums to heal and reattach themselves more firmly.
  • Bacteria in plaque cause gums to be inflamed and swollen. When this layer accumulates under the gums, tissues that support the teeth may get affected and thus, the signs of periodontal disease in the form of pockets, bleeding from gums, mobility of teeth are evident.

It’s crucial to use proper brushing and flossing procedures after scaling and root planing to stop plaque from forming again in the same areas.
