What Happens During Scaling and Root Planing in Columbia, SC?

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that targets plaque and tartar below the gum line. This treatment prevents tooth loss, receding gum lines, tissue inflammation, and other issues caused by varying stages of gum disease. We also recommend it as a preventative measure.

When we scale a patient’s teeth, we remove stubborn plaque and calculus from each tooth’s surface. Using an ultrasonic scaling tool, we carefully eliminate the plaque while irrigating the mouth with a tasteless antimicrobial substance. This fluid prevents germs from spreading.

We use small tools to reach the tooth’s surface below the gum line during root planing. These tools will gently remove toxins and microorganisms trapped beneath the gums. This process helps heal each tooth’s roots.

Advantages of Scaling and Root Planing

A successful scaling and root planing procedure comes with multiple benefits, including:

  • Reduced likelihood of developing gum disease
  • Effective gum disease treatment
  • Whiter, brighter teeth with no stains or buildup
  • Decreased chance of tooth loss
