What Is Scaling and Root Planing?
In the event that gum (periodontal) disease is diagnosed in the primary stage (often called gingivitis), it is typically addressed with professional teeth cleaning and enhanced oral hygiene habits. However, when the gum issue advances to the second phase, called periodontitis, a member of our team might suggest scaling and root planing (SRP) therapy. Scaling and root planing is a nonsurgical periodontal disease procedure that removes buildup, tartar, and unwanted bacteria from behind your gum tissues. To conduct this therapy, our talented Racine, WI dental hygienists even out the outsides of the tooth roots within periodontal pockets using specially designed dental instruments. Scaling and root planing works to create a desirable atmosphere for your gums and reverse the advancement of gum disease. In the event that you show symptoms of periodontitis, set up an evaluation at Creating Beautiful Smiles to discover more about scaling and root planing.
What Is the Treatment Process for Scaling and Root Planing?
Scaling and root planing at our Racine, WI facility is generally completed in varied areas of the mouth over the course of 1 – 4 sessions. To ensure that you stay comfortable, our dentist may desensitize your mouth by utilizing a general anesthetic. Sedation might also be available if you feel nervous when getting dental treatment. As soon as you are okay to get started, one of our team members will use our state-of-the-art root scaler and handheld instruments to precisely eradicate tartar and plaque from your periodontal pockets. Your tooth root surfaces are then evened out, or planed, to decrease the areas where dangerous bacteria could accumulate. Topically delivered antibiotics might additionally be placed deep into the periodontal pockets to promote oral health and control bacterial accumulation.
