Scaling & Root Planing
This deep cleaning involves two distinct components. First, our team will start by removing bacterial buildup from above and below the gum line with special instruments (the “scaling” portion). Then, it will be time to address the tooth roots, which can develop rough surfaces that attract plaque over time. By performing root planing, we’ll gradually smooth them down to prevent further reoccurrences of infection and encourage the gum tissue to naturally reattach in place.
Antibiotic therapy may be recommended as a helpful supplement to scaling and root planing. The medication is either applied directly to gum tissue or ingested orally – our goal is to continue eliminating dangerous bacteria from the mouth for days and weeks following your initial procedure, maximizing its chances of long-term success. Antibiotic therapy can even noticeably reduce the size of periodontal pockets!
