Scaling and Root Planing for a Deep Cleaning

Often, patients are told they need a deep cleaning due to mild or severe gum disease. If it has been a while since you've seen a dentist, then it is likely that you have more build-up than normal. Scaling and root planing is a procedure that allows dental hygienists to debride and clean teeth under the gums and around the bone level. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and will allow your gums to heal back to their normal positions and reduce inflammation and future bone loss. In this case, the patient had not seen a dentist in 7 years. Over that time, plaque hardens up and turns into hard calculus. Eventually, it discolors and bacteria start eating away at the gum tissues and discoloring teeth. But in just one visit, the mouth is transformed and this patient is back on track to maintaining good periodontal health
