Let’s look into what exactly is Dental Scaling and Root Planning Treatment
- Scaling normally means removing the accumulated layers. It is different from bleaching, which just focusses on cleaning the surface of the Teeth.
- Whereas, Dental Scaling goes much deeper. It involves removing the plaque build up beneath the gumline.
- At aRdent Dental Care, Dental Scaling is done manually and using Ultrasonic technology.
- In the manual process, our experienced periodontists examine the Teeth. After that, our Periodontists insert a thin tool called as a Dental scaler and curette to access the Plaque-infested area, which your Tooth brush can’t reach. By doing so, the Plaque can be removed.
- Using Ultrasonic instruments, Dental scaling can be done. Ultrasonic instruments feature a vibrating metal tip combined with a water spray. The vibrating metal tip breaks down the Tartar and Plaque. The water spray flushes out the debris thereby making the area free from plaque.
- Dental Scaling, which covers the gum tissues, is followed by Root planning treatment.
- Root planning treatment involves cleaning the surface area of the Tooth’s Root. This eliminates the plaque in the Roots and helps the gums maintain their bond with the Tooth.
- For people with sensitive gums, Dental scaling could be uncomfortable. But by administering local anaesthesia the affected area can be numbed. This paves way for the Periodontist to perform the Dental Scaling process easily.
