Restoring Gum Health

Scaling and root planing is a procedure that goes beyond a routine cleaning and is typically recommended for patients who have gum disease or are at risk of developing it. During the procedure, our dental professionals at Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implants will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line, as well as
smooth out rough spots on the teeth roots to prevent bacteria from accumulating.


This treatment is typically recommended for patients who have gum disease, which is caused by the buildup of bacteria and plaque on the teeth and gums. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding or swollen gums, bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems.
The benefits of scaling and root planing are numerous.

  • It can help prevent gum disease from progressing and improve overall oral
    health.
  • It can help reduce the risk of other health problems associated with gum disease,
    such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
  • Patients who undergo scaling and root planing may also notice fresher breath,
    whiter teeth, and a healthier, more vibrant smile.
