Brushing and flossing daily, along with having regular check-ups, are essential practices to good dental care. In cases where gum disease has set in, a process called scaling and root planing may be done to fix the problem. This process is fairly simple, and if good hygiene is resumed after the procedure, it should be able to stop the spread of the disease.
What To Expect
After The Treatment
In order for the scaling and root planing procedure to be successful long-term, it is important that you return to a consistent schedule of good oral hygiene. Brush and floss regularly, and make sure to schedule visits twice a year for a dental check-up and cleaning. Scaling and root planning can be successful as long as good dental hygiene is performed afterwards in order to stop the return of gum disease. If you are dealing with the early stages of gum disease, this procedure is a great way to reduce spreading and stop future development of the disease. The doctor performs this simple procedure in order to ensure that your teeth and mouth are as healthy as possible. Once you notice the initial stages of this disease, schedule an appointment immediately to deal with the problem.
