Root Planing

Regain oral health

In order to resolve the inflammation of the gums, the cause of gum irritation has to be removed. Calculus or tartar and plaque on the root surface of the teeth harbours toxin that in high quantity cause swollen gums and destruction of the surrounding bone. The process of removing calculus below the gum is called root planing. Usually one section of the mouth is rootplaned at one time under local anaesthesia and it takes up to 2 hours.

Deep Scaling is when your dentist removes all the plaque and tartar on and below the gum-line and making sure to clean all the way down to the bottom of the pocket.

Scaling involves the use of a specialised instrument to loosen and remove plaque and tartar without damaging your gums and teeth. Tooth polishing is done to smooth the surfaces of the tooth.
