Treating Periodontal (Gum) Disease with a Deep Cleaning (SRP)
Scaling and root planing is a non – surgical periodontal treatment. Scaling and root planing is a cautious cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial poisons. Most periodontists would agree that in the wake of scaling and root planing, numerous patients don’t require any further effective treatment. However, most patients will require continuous maintenance treatment to support health.

Even in late stages of the disease, gum disease may progress painlessly producing a few obvious sings. Although the symptoms of periodontal disease often are subtle, the condition is not entirely without warning signs.
Here are some symptoms of gum disease:
Bleeding gums after brushing your teeth
Red, swollen, or tender gums
bad taste in the mouth, or persistent bad breath
Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums
Loose or shifting teeth
Changes in the way teeth fit together upon biting down, or in the fit of partial dentures.
How does the Deep Cleaning (SRP) Benefits You?
Scaling and Root Planing includes the elimination of tartar, bacterial plaque, bacterial poisons and diseased cementum (the external covering of the root surface). The aim behind this therapy is to shrink periodontal pockets and cut down contamination so that further problem is handled by the immune system. We utilize the ultrasonic device and we line – up with uncommon hand instruments to rub away bacterial stores above and underneath the gumline.
The goals of gum disease treatment are to promote reattachment of healthy gums to teeth; reduce swelling, the depth of pockets, and the risk of infection; and to stop disease progression. Full mouth Scaling and Root Planing w/Laser treatment requires somewhere around 4 appointments.
