Dental Scaling & Root Planing Etobicoke

Dental Scaling & Root Planing Etobicoke

Plaque, a sticky bacteria-filled substance, sticks to teeth and hardens into calculus, causing gum inflammation, bleeding, and bone loss, known as gum disease.

Gingivitis is the early stage, causing bleeding gums, which can progress to periodontitis if untreated, leading to further gum and bone damage and tooth loss.

Scaling and root planning are the main treatments for gum disease. Scaling removes plaque and calculus from above and below the gum line, while root planning smooths the root surface.

For comfort, the dentist may numb the area during extensive plaque and calculus removal. Sonic and hand instruments are used to clean the teeth, with post-treatment sensitivity managed by over-the-counter pain relievers.

After treatment, a follow-up visit at Village Dental is scheduled to check gum improvement. Regular appointments every 3 to 6 months help monitor the disease and reduce inflammation to maintain bone height around the teeth.
