What Is Scaling and Root Planing?
In cases where gum (periodontal) disease is found in the first stage (commonly known as gingivitis), it can be resolved with professional teeth cleaning and improved oral health regimens. However, when the gum tissue develops into the subsequent stage, referred to as periodontitis, Dr. Christopher Ashby might perform scaling and root planing (SRP) therapy. SRP is a well-known periodontal disease procedure that removes plaque, tartar, and dangerous bacteria from underneath your gumline. Our skilled Fort Loramie, OH dental hygienists smooth the outer portions of the tooth roots within periodontal pockets using specially designed dental instruments to perform this treatment. Scaling and root planing offers a desirable environment for your gums and arrests the progression of gum disease. When you see signs of periodontal disease, schedule an evaluation at Fort Loramie Dental Center to discover more about scaling and root planing.
What Is the Scaling and Root Planing Process?
Treatment with SRP at our Fort Loramie, OH practice is often completed in different parts of the mouth over 1 – 4 appointments. To help you feel at ease, Dr. Ashby may dull the area with a mild anesthetic. Sedation may also be offered if you feel anxious when receiving oral care. When you are ready to get started, our team will use an ultrasonic dental scaler and handheld tools to precisely eliminate buildup and plaque from inside your gum pockets. The tooth root surfaces will then be evened out or planed to minimize the areas where disease-causing bacteria might gather. Topical antibiotics could also be administered down into the periodontal pockets to improve oral health and halt bacterial accumulation.
