If you are in the early stages of periodontal disease, your dentist will probably recommend dental scaling and root planing as a solution to returning your mouth to its healthiest state. In scaling, your experienced dentist at Zara Dental Services, Houston will remove tartar build-up as well as plaque that has attached itself to your teeth’s surfaces, especially those areas that are below the gum line, near the root. And since plaque is most attracted to rough surfaces, root planing will serve to smooth out the surface of the root.
Because scaling and root planing might cause some discomfort, your dentist will use a local anesthetic during the procedure. Then, using a combination of hand instruments and ultrasonic scalars, the dentist will remove the largest plaque and calculus deposits first and then move on to detail work, making sure the entire surface area is free and clear from bacteria-causing build-up.
Although only one visit might be necessary for scaling and root planing if you are only in the earliest stages of gum disease known as gingivitis, if you are suffering from moderate to advanced periodontitis, your procedure will require multiple visits. As always, your highly qualified Zara dentist will make sure that you are aware of each step of the process and how long you can expect it to take.
Cost of your scaling and root planing may usually be covered by your dental insurance or extended dental coverage. However if you don’t have insurance or If you are looking for more information about the cost of a specific service, please contact one of our expert Treatment Coordinators for help. They can help with putting together an affordable payment plan so you can get the dental treatment that you need.
