Treating Gum Disease with Scaling & Root Planing
For those in need of scaling and root planing in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer dental deep cleaning services and a solution to gum disease. Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning treatment that scrapes away tartar (scaling) and smoothes out rough areas on the tooth roots (planing). This gum disease treatment removes tartar in a technologically advanced way, as specially designed hand instruments and ultrasonic scalers are used to perform deep dental cleaning for Virginia Beach, VA patients.
Maintain Homecare Following Treatment
After the procedure, it is imperative that patients maintain their at-home maintenance and care during the healing process. The mouth needs to be free of plaque, food and debris in order to keep further bacteria from building. Special attention to thorough brushing and flossing daily is crucial.
Overall, scaling and root planing is most effective in the early stages of periodontal disease, and can help reduce periodontal pocket depths by two to three millimeters on average.
