Your Gums Deserve The Best Treatment!

Scaling and root planing is a conservative and effective procedure used to treat periodontal disease before it advances. If periodontal disease is not treated, the bacteria will work its way to foundations of the tooth causing a “periodontal pocket”. Sometimes referred to as a deep cleaning, scaling and root planing targets these infected areas to remove calculus and tartar within these periodontal pockets.

Scaling involves the removal of built up plaque and tartar. During root planing, the roots of the teeth will be gently cleaned and any rough spots will be removed.

Scaling and root planing actually helps gums heal. The gums will have an easier time reattaching themselves to a smooth surface than a rough one. It also helps keep calculus and tartar from attacking the root surface again. Once complete, Dr. Cascante will recommend a follow-up plan to help you maintain this healthy environment.

A simple procedure like scaling and root planing can reduce the effects of periodontal disease and return gum tissue back to health. To find out if you’re a candidate for scaling and root planing, schedule a consultation today.
