FIND OUT WHAT DEEP SCALING AND ROOT PLANING TEETH TREATMENT IS ALL ABOUT
Sonic vibrations will be used to remove plaque and bacteria and then goes on to take away calculus – this is what is known to most people as tartar. It will be taken away from both the teeth and below gums level. If there is anything left, they will use a manual instrument to eliminate the remainder. Root planing deals more with protecting the integrity of the gums. The surface of the roots is scaled, and plaque is removed from there as well. If this is done correctly, it will prevent the gums from becoming inflamed as if they do. It will be a sign that they are becoming infected.
Frequently asked questions
WHY DO YOU NEED A DEEP SCALING AND ROOT PLANING TREATMENT?
The good news is that if you are on top of things and catch the problem early, the dentist should be able to clear up any infection and save the tooth. The concern will be if there is damage formed below the gum line. When this happens and the pocket has become too deep to clean out normally, scaling and root planning is going to be the only way to save the teeth. Your dentist should explain exactly what they are going to do before any of the treatment starts.
WHO IS MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO NEEDING A SCALING AND ROOT PLANING?
It is at this stage that the pockets can appear around the tooth. A gap of up to 3mm in fine, but by the time it measures 4mm or more, you are going to need professional help. Even if you are not aware of the seriousness right away, you soon will be as bad breath is one of the side effects. Scaling should be enough to solve the problem, but if it has happened once, you need to be aware that it can happen again and there may have to be a regular session dedicated to getting the teeth back to the condition they should be in. If your dentist tells you that the pockets are now at 4mm or more, then you can be sure that the next thing they tell you is that you need dental scaling.
HOW DO YOU TREAT A PATIENT USING A SCALING AND ROOT PLANING TECHNIQUE?
Next will be the root planing. This is where the tooth root will be smoothed out and it is as a result of this that the gums will lose the pocket that had been created and begin to adhere to the teeth again. Unfortunately, you may have to have a number of visits as it can be uncomfortable to have it all in one session and the dentist does not want you to be distressed or to have to rush the job. To try and make it as easy as possible, they may give you an anesthetic.
