Scaling and Root Planing is one of the treatments that are used to remove and treat plaque from the gum pockets. These methods are very effective when the pockets are really deep. In case of smaller pockets, professional deep cleaning will do the trick for you.

All about scaling and root planing

Scaling and Root Planing are the methods of deep cleaning below gum lines that are used to treat gum diseases. Gum diseases are basically caused by a film of sticky bacterias known as plaque. They can be removed easily by maintaining daily hygiene routines. But in case they are not cleaned well, it leads to gum inflammation. The inflammation in turn will pull away from the gums from your teeth forming small spaces called pockets. When the plaque gets trapped into these pockets, you will not be able to remove them easily and hence will need a visit to the dentist. If left untreated, it can even lead to bone and teeth loss.

The procedure and aftercare

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.

I went to Vital Dental with a broken tooth with an exposed nerve. Had no insurance so I was nervous. Was in extreme pain and was seen as soon as possible. The staff helped me to cope with the pain and then Dr Williams and his assistant worked magic to stop the pain and removed the broken tooth. The price was the cheapest in town for this fantastic service. I recommend this place 10000%

I needed emergency dental care and had viewed many websites before finding this dental office. The staff are professional, efficient and friendly! I was intending on them being a one time appt but have already switched Dentists after 30 yrs of same Dentist. The ladies are knowledgeable, very helpful and caring! I am very comfortable with the Dentist and staff and recommend this office!

It was a pleasure visiting Vital Dental. Had been there before and decided not to go back but found that there is new staff and just the sweetest and very professional group of people. I feel very confident about my care now because of the reassurance I feel. Just the way my plan of action was explained I feel I have gone to the right place. Thank you.
