Scaling & Root Planing
South Ogden, UT

Rendering of dental tools cleaning plaque from lower teethIf you have plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth, it can negatively affect the health of your gums, even leading to periodontal disease. For this condition, our periodontists might recommend scaling and root planing.

Scaling and root planing is one of the most common and effective treatments recommended for gum disease before it becomes severe. This deep cleaning treatment includes two main steps:

•  Scaling: In scaling, we remove plaque and tartar (dental calculus) from the tooth surface.
•  Root Planing: This step involves cleaning the roots of the teeth, smoothing them to remove bacterial toxins.

The goals of scaling and root planing are to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar, and to halt the progress of the disease. While most scaling and root planing treatments can be completed comfortably without an anesthetic, our periodontist can offer several anesthetic and other comfort options to make certain that you feel at ease during your treatment. The scaling and root planing treatment may be split up into several appointments, in which we treat one section of the mouth at each appointment.

Scaling and root planing may be combined with other types of periodontal therapy, such as antibiotic treatment. For most patients, scaling and root planing is enough to prevent periodontal disease from progressing further.
