Scaling and Root Planing

When the condition of the gums has reached a more serious point of inflammation and disease, beyond being managed by even a regular cleaning and common home care, a more specialized cleaning called 'scaling and root planing' may be performed.
At Implant Perio Centre Northshore, your cleaning will be managed for optimal comfort and efficiency.  Depending on your preference, a mild anaesthetic may be administered, after which your teeth will be cleaned of plaque and tarter above and below your gum line.
The advantage of scaling & root planing is that it may effectively treat gum disease before it becomes more advanced.  By having a thorough, specialized cleaning of your teeth between the gums, teeth and exposed root surfaces, there is an opportunity to help promote gum health.
