What Is Scaling and Root Planing?
When periodontal (gum) disease is diagnosed in the first phase, commonly referred to as gingivitis, it may be reversed with a thorough dental cleaning and enhanced oral hygiene routine; however, when the dental issue progresses to the second stage, referred to as periodontitis, Dr. Cassandra Garcia recommends scaling and root planing (SRP) treatments. SRP is a nonsurgical periodontal disease option that gets rid of plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria from underneath your gum tissues. SRP will create a better environment for your gumline and halt the advancement of gum disease. When you exhibit symptoms of periodontal disease, schedule an appointment at Savannah Smiles Dental in Schertz, TX to learn more about scaling and root planing.
How Is Scaling and Root Planing Performed?
Scaling and root planing at our Schertz, TX facility is commonly offered in quadrants of your mouth over 1 – 4 appointments. To ensure that you stay at ease, Dr. Garcia may numb the area by offering a local anesthetic. Sedation could also be given in the event that you feel nervous when receiving dental treatment. Once you are prepped, our team will use an ultrasonic tooth scaler and hand tools to delicately remove buildup and plaque from within your pockets. Your tooth root surfaces are then smoothed (planed) to lessen the regions where harmful bacteria can collect. Topical antibiotics may also be administered deep into the pockets to support dental health and stop bacterial growth.
Savannah Smiles Dental Reviews
The transition from retiring Dr Durnford to new ownership for Savanah Smiles Dental has been seamless and flawless from my perspective. New staff are friendly and absolutely professional. I don't particularly enjoy dental visits, but Dr Garcia put me at ease right away. She has an affable personality and she exudes confidence and professionalism. Robert, the dental tech who conducted my cleaning, was exceptional and we had a lot in common. It was like running into an old friend you haven't seen for awhile. He took care of my teeth and did a wonderful job. This is the place to come for your dental needs!
