Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease occurs when plaque and tartar have a chance to accumulate around the gums as well as on the tooth roots. In order to treat the disease, we need to remove these substances, and that requires a special cleaning approach known as scaling and root planing. Scaling is the actual removal of plaque and tartar while root planing helps prevent future buildups by smoothing out the rough surfaces where bacteria tend to gather.
Getting rid of all of the bacteria in your mouth is a very tricky process; even after scaling and root planing, there will probably be some bacteria hiding in the deepest parts of the gum tissue where they can’t be easily reached. Thus, in addition to periodontal cleanings, we can also prescribe antibiotics, which have been shown to help dramatically speed up the recovery rate by eliminating any leftover bacteria.
