Periodontitis: For advanced gum disease, this procedure is vital to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar that may lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

Understanding your oral health and its specific needs is crucial in determining when scaling and root planing is needed for your individual case.

How Does Scaling and Root Planing Work ?

Thorough Examination: We start with a comprehensive examination to assess the extent of gum disease and determine the areas requiring treatment.

Local Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort, local anesthesia is administered to numb the treatment area.

Scaling: The removal of plaque, tartar, and bacteria is performed using specialized tools. This process cleans the tooth surfaces and below the gumline.

Root Planing: Smoothing of the tooth roots eliminates rough areas where bacteria can accumulate, promoting healing and preventing future issues.

Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, we provide post-treatment care instructions to guide you through a comfortable recovery and maintain optimal gum health.
