Periodontal disease is progressive. Left untreated, it will worsen over time and it will eventually result in tooth loss. Early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease is the key. Periodontal scaling and root planing is a periodontal procedure that is commonly done at a quality Baltimore periodontist office
in the early stages of periodontal disease for this purpose.
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure that’s done to treat periodontal disease. The main objective of this non-surgical procedure is to remove all agents that cause gingival inflammation and disease, like dental tartar and plaque. During the procedure, a qualified periodontist like our expert at our Baltimore periodontist office, thoroughly cleans between the gums and teeth all the way down to the roots. The procedure is usually done to treat gingivitis and can be used to treat moderate to severe periodontal disease. During scaling, the periodontist removes the plaque from the teeth by scraping the tartar off; from above and below the gum line. Planning involves removing rough spots where germs gather, which helps remove the bacteria that contributes to the disease. Periodontal disease must be addresses as soon as possible so it doesn’t progress. If you’re looking for a highly skilled periodontist to treat you, you’re in luck.
