Gum disease is one of the most common oral problems that people are suffering from worldwide. Dental cleaning is one of the best professional techniques of curing gum diseases. Through this technique, gum diseases have become completely curable and even reversible. Scaling and root planning is a form of deep cleaning and is different from conventional dental cleaning.(301) 867-7015
At Dental Care of Waldorf, scaling and root planing is done to remove the hard deposits and plaque on the teeth surfaces that are under the gums. Conventional dental cleaning can just take care of the tooth surfaces that are above the gum line. Hence, scaling and root planing have a key role to play when it comes to maintenance of periodontal health.
The deposits collected on the teeth surfaces gets wiped off while toothbrushing normally. When the food particles get into the gap between teeth and gums and harden there to form tartar, they become strongly glued to the teeth. This marks the beginning of the vicious cycle of tartar and gum problems. The tartar initiates inflammatory response from the gums and the gums undergo swelling and slowly get detached from the tooth surfaces in due course of time. This way the gap between the gums and the teeth deepens paving way for more bacteria to multiply in that space and create havoc. The only way to break this cycle is by carrying out scaling and root planing.
