Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing in Boynton Beach, FL.


Scaling and root planing are deep cleaning techniques that will help to clean your gum lines. Getting treated with gum disease will help you stop the progression of gum diseases. If you are having inflamed gums, irritated gums, or if you see blood frequently while brushing, then chances are there that you might have periodontal disease (gum diseases). In such a situation, please do not delay and visit us at Dorri’s Dental. We offer world-class treatment for all types of periodontal problems.

Why do you need Scaling and Root Planing?

Gum disease is mostly caused due to the bacteria present in plaque. Non-maintenance of proper oral hygiene is the leading cause behind the formation of plaque over the gum line. The bacteria can cause inflammation of gums, and as a result, it gets pulled away from the teeth. It leads to the formation of spaces between teeth and gums, which are known as pockets. Scaling and root planing is very effective when the pockets are very deep. If these pockets are not treated on time, then it can affect your jawbones, and you might end up losing your teeth. If you feel food getting stuck between your teeth, contact Dorri’s Dental as soon as possible.


What happens during the procedure?

The procedure is divided into two parts. The first part consists of scaling where your dentist will remove all the plaque and tartar from and above your gum line. They make sure to clean till the bottom of the pocket. Then your dentist will perform root planing, where he will smooth your teeth roots so that your gums can re-attach to your teeth. This procedure can also be divided by quadrants since your mouth is divided into four quadrants. We recommend getting all of them done as quickly as possible.
