Scaling and Root Planing

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, can pose a significant danger to a patient’s oral health, which is why scaling and root planing (otherwise known as a deep cleaning), can be so important. This type of dental procedure provides the kind of deep cleaning that can minimize the risk of contracting gum disease.

Gum disease occurs when there is a significant build-up of plaque around the teeth and gums. Plaque contains a significant amount of bacteria, which can turn into tartar if it’s not removed via careful oral hygiene and regular appointments with your dentist. When tartar is left on the surface of the tooth, it can release dangerous toxins, which can cause gum disease, tooth loss, and eventually bone loss.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder scaling and root planing is so critical to preserving your oral health.
