Speak with us regarding the cleaning you’d like to have done. This can ensure that the health of your teeth is taken care of.

What is Scaling and Root Planing?

Many people ask what this procedure is. While it can be uncomfortable to have it done, it is necessary for the health of your teeth and gums. This is when the dental hygienist will use their tools to go under the gums and between the teeth to scale and remove away any build up and plaque. This might not be felt or seen by the naked eye.

When the person has not had a cleaning in some time, the deposits and build up that happens under the gums causes problems. This can cause decay to happen, which leads to large cavities. Having the scaling done sooner, rather than later helps the teeth become stronger. Ask for a local anesthetic if you feel that the process may be uncomfortable. They will try to make you as comfortable as possible with the process. Just remember, it needs to be done to build healthier teeth and gums overall.

Our team at our Charlotte dental offices knows that periodontal disease isn’t something exclusive to adults. It can affect adolescents as well. Gingivitis, which is a milder form of periodontitis, is a form of periodontal disease, and a warning that more serious problems may arise. Untreated gingivitis can develop into full-blown periodontitis.
