Scaling and root planing
is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe. Scaling and root planning is the careful cleaning of the root surface to remove plaque and calculus(tartar) from deep periodontal pockets by smoothing the tooth root surface and removing bacterial toxins it allows your gum tissue to readapt around your teeth.
Periodontal re-evaluations and continued Periodontal Therapy is highly advised after your initial treatment to ensure that the ongoing process of Periodontal Disease is caught at its early stages, In some cases Dr. Quintero might suggest local delivery antimicrobials and/or host modulation.
