The process is divided into two parts. Scaling is when the plaque and the tartar is removed from above and below the gumline, till the very end of the gum pockets. Root Planing will be performed after this in which your dentist will re-attach the gums to your teeth. The whole process will take more than one visit to complete.
Once the process is completed, you might face some pain and teeth sensitivity for up to a week. Your gums might also remain swollen and feel tender for a few days. At Vital Dental, we have experienced dentists who will help you to get your teeth scaled and root planed. They will always give you tips so that you can recover easily. Make sure that you visit the dentist at least twice a year.
