Keep Your Gums Healthy With Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing in Newmarket, ON
What is it, and do I need it?
Scaling and root planing in Newmarket, ON, is a non-surgical procedure that helps prevent and treat gum disease. Professional dental hygiene cleanings work to remove buildup that can occur under your gums, even with daily brushing and flossing, to reduce redness, bleed and inflammation caused by the living bacteria in plaque and tartar.
When is it needed? Risks of not getting it done
Without regular hygiene appointments, periodontal disease can develop—starting with gingivitis or red, inflamed and bleeding gums. This can progress into periodontitis, which is the loss of bone from bacteria eating away at your teeth’ supporting structures underneath your gums. Over time this can also lead to bad breath, poor function and mobility of your teeth and mouth, as well as the eventual loss of your teeth.
How is it done?
Our dental hygienists at Oasispark Dental work to remove the plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth at every cleaning appointment. However, a periodontal cleaning of scaling and planing means they will especially target plaque trapped in the area underneath your gums, along the root of your tooth.
