Scaling and Root Planing

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition that affects the health of your gums and the supporting structures of your teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious oral health issues. At Southwest Dentistry, we emphasize the importance of addressing gum disease promptly to maintain a healthy smile. Our team of experts is here to provide you with effective treatment options, including Scaling and Root Planing.

The Scaling Process

Scaling is a non-surgical procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. By meticulously cleaning these hard-to-reach areas, we can eliminate harmful bacteria and toxins that contribute to gum inflammation and bleeding.

The Root Planing Process

Root planing is another vital step in the treatment of gum disease. This process involves smoothing the root surfaces of your teeth to discourage further bacterial growth and facilitate gum tissue healing and reattachment.

Benefits of Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing offer numerous benefits for your oral health. By undergoing this procedure, you can expect a reduction in gum inflammation and bleeding, removal of bacteria and toxins from the gum pockets, and the promotion of gum tissue healing. It also plays a crucial role in halting the progression of gum disease and preventing tooth loss. Should further periodontal treatments be necessary, Scaling and Root Planing can prepare your gums for optimal outcomes.
