Scaling and Root Planing

The most conventional form of treatment for the removal of calculus, plaque and tartar attached to the surface of the tooth below the gum line, along the root is Scaling. Generally, a sticky substance that forms on teeth, which is full of bacteria is known as plaque and continuous deposit of plaque hardened over the longer period is called as calculus. This causes gingival inflammation and other dental disorders.
Root planing is done to make the tooth surfaces smoother to overcome rough surface areas that are more prone to stick plaque. The process of scaling and root planing includes removal of calculus and smoothening of irregular surfaces with the help of ultrasonic scalers and hand-held instruments.
According to professional dentists of Cosmetic Dentistry NYC, the major advantage of scaling and root planing is that it can help in the prevention of oral disease by removing source of bacteria and infections. A great tool in protecting teeth against tooth loss, scaling and root planing can give aesthetic benefits through cleaner, whiter and stain-free teeth.
