SCALING AND ROOT PLANING

Gum disease is the most common dental problem in the entire world.If you are experiencing bleeding gums while brushing teeth it may be time for you to see the dentist to get a thorough evaluation as untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss at a very young age.

Scaling and root planing AKA Deep Cleaning is a procedure involving removal of dental plaque and calculus and then smoothing of the exposed root surfaces removing cementum or dentin that is impregnated with calculus or microorganisms.In some cases depending on the severity topical or systemic antibiotics may be required to make sure all the infection is eradicated.
