Scaling & Root Planning
Bleeding gums coupled with tooth-bone loss, also known as “periodontal disease,” is common and affects 60% of the population. To prevent tooth loss and effectively tackle periodontal disease, we provide Scaling & Root Planning procedures that remove bacteria and reduce inflammation. The Scaling & Root Planning procedure is an initial treatment to prevent the progression of periodontal disease. The procedure involves the removal of calcified bacteria deposits, which removes the causative elements for infection, thereby reducing the inflammatory process and stopping the progress of bone loss. If necessary, additional treatments beyond the Scaling & Root Planning procedure may also be provided or performed, including antibiotics or surgery.
