Scaling and root planning(deep cleaning)

Keep your gums and teeth healthy with our outstanding Scaling and Root Planing service!

Our team of highly trained dental hygienists is dedicated to removing plaque and tartar built up under the gums.

With scaling and root planing, we can prevent and treat periodontal disease, improving your oral health.



Scaling and Root Planing is a periodontal procedure in which bacterial plaque and tartar accumulated under the gums and on the surfaces of the tooth roots are removed. This is done using handheld or ultrasonic instruments to clean hard-to-reach areas and smooth tooth root surfaces.

Scaling and Root Planing is recommended when there is a buildup of plaque and tartar under the gums, which can cause inflammation, bleeding, and periodontal disease. It can also be recommended as part of maintenance treatment for patients with previous periodontal disease.

During the procedure, local anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort. Next, a dental hygienist will use manual or ultrasonic instruments to carefully remove plaque and tartar from the tooth root surfaces. The tooth roots are then smoothed to facilitate healing and prevent future bacteria buildup.

Local anesthesia is used during the procedure to minimize any discomfort or pain. You may experience slight tenderness or discomfort after treatment, but this is temporary and can be relieved with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Recovery time after Scaling and Root Planing is generally quick. You can expect complete healing in a few days. During this time, you will be provided with oral care instructions and follow-up appointments will be scheduled to evaluate your progress and ensure you get the best results possible.
