Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, often referred to as gum disease, occurs when bacteria in dental plaque and tartar accumulate along the gumline, leading to inflammation, infection, and eventual destruction of the gum tissue and bone supporting the teeth. Without proper treatment, gum disease can result in tooth loss and have systemic implications for your overall health.

The Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing Process

Periodontal scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure performed by our experienced dental hygienists to remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins from below the gumline and smooth the root surfaces of the teeth. This process helps eliminate bacteria and create a clean environment for the gums to heal and reattach to the teeth.

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: During your initial visit, we will conduct a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, and supporting structures to assess the extent of gum disease and determine the appropriate treatment plan.
  2. Local Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, local anesthesia may be administered to numb the gums and tooth roots.
  3. Scaling: Using specialized instruments called scalers and ultrasonic devices, our dental hygienists will carefully remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth and below the gumline.
  4. Root Planing: After scaling, the root surfaces of the teeth are smoothed (planed) to remove rough areas and bacterial toxins, facilitating gum tissue healing and reattachment.
  5. Antimicrobial Treatment: In some cases, antimicrobial agents or antibiotics may be applied to the gum pockets to further reduce bacterial infection and promote healing.
  6. Follow-Up Care: Following periodontal scaling and root planing, regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your gum health and ensure optimal healing. Additional supportive periodontal therapy may be recommended as needed to maintain gum health.
