Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that involves numbing of the gums, so all tartar is removed from under the gumline. Inflammation under the gums can lead to bone loss and scaling and root planing can reverse the inflammation in these areas.
At Ford Dental Group, we offer scaling and root planing to ensure your gum tissue is healthy. This procedure is crucial for maintaining good oral health and preventing further damage to your teeth and gums. If you are experiencing any symptoms of gum disease, such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Once scaling and root planing is done, your gums will be healthy and free of tartar. This procedure is an important step in maintaining good oral health and preventing further damage to your teeth and gums. Then, periodontal maintenance is important to keep up with regular cleanings so that bacteria and tartar doesn’t come back as easily. If it has been a significant time since your last cleaning, it may be likely that you need scaling and root planing. Call us with any of your concerns and we will get you scheduled.
