Root planing and scaling is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe and to save yourself expensive Dental Care early!!! At Sherman Oaks Dental in Naperville, Illinois, we strive to provide preventive dental treatments.
Root planing and scaling cleans between the gums and the teeth down to the roots. A local anesthetic may be used to numb your gums and the roots of your teeth. Planing and scaling causes little or no discomfort. Root planing and scaling is done when gums have either started to pull away from the teeth or the roots of the teeth have hard mineral deposits (tartar) on them.
If you maintain good dental care after the procedure, the progression of gum disease should stop, and your gums will heal and become firm and pink again. Root planing and scaling is a simple procedure that can be very effective in stopping gum disease. Brush and floss regularly afterward. Without proper dental care, your gum disease may progress. To promote healing, stop all use of tobacco. It decreases your ability to fight infection of your gums and delays healing.
