Scaling Root Planing

When periodontal disease is left untreated, it only gets worse. And the worse it gets, the worse the side effects. Eventually, this infection of your gums can even lead to tooth loss. Luckily, if you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, you can help treat it and reverse its effects with scaling and root planing. Also known as “deep cleaning” or “periodontal therapy”, scaling and root planing has become the gold standard for treating periodontal disease.

During the scaling part of the treatment, plaque, tartar, and bacteria are removed above and below your gumline, including the pockets that have formed. Then, root planing begins, which consists of smoothing the surface of your tooth root to make it harder for bacteria to stick in the future and easier for your gums to reattach to your teeth. While scaling and root planing does not fully cure periodontal disease, it does slow or stop its progression, reduced your need for surgical intervention, and helps your swollen bleeding gums become healthy again.

If you have periodontal disease, it’s time to stop this gum infection right in its tracks with scaling and root planing at Healthy Dental Expressions. Contact our experienced Lake Worth dental team to schedule your scaling and root planing appointment or for more information today.
