Details About Scaling And Root Planing

Scaling And Root Planing

When plaque and tartar accumulate on the teeth, they create an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive. These bacteria can irritate the gums, leading to inflammation and increased susceptibility to bleeding. If you notice bleeding while brushing or eating, it may indicate gum irritation, a common early sign of gum disease known as gingivitis.

If diagnosed with gingivitis, your dentist or hygienist will typically recommend a comprehensive dental cleaning procedure called scaling and polishing. This process effectively removes plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and below the gumline, helping to alleviate gum irritation. Additionally, they may suggest using an antiseptic mouthwash, such as OraCare, to further reduce bacterial growth and inflammation.

Moreover, your dental professional will provide personalized guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing techniques tailored to your specific needs. It’s essential to address gingivitis early to prevent further progression of gum disease and maintain optimal oral health. Remember, gum disease is prevalent among adults, but with proper care and regular dental check-ups, it can be effectively managed and controlled.
