Scaling and Root Planing Serving Ontario and the greater Toronto areas
Gum disease is one of the most frequent issues people deal with when trying to maintain a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Gum disease is the result of bacteria buildup beneath the gum line and can usually be treated with regular checkups, cleanings, brushing, and flossing. However, if gum disease is not treated properly and promptly, more severe periodontal disease may occur. Professional scaling and root planing can reduce the unhealthy bacteria and ensure your healthy smile lasts a lifetime.
Scaling and root planing effectively clean the teeth below the gum line, eliminating harmful bacteria and reducing risk of gum disease. A specialized dental instrument, known as a scaler, removes built up tartar and plaque below the gum line. This process simultaneously smooths the tooth root and allows a quick and proper healing of the gums. Local anesthetic may be applied to ensure your comfort.
