About the Scaling and Root Planing Procedure
During scaling and root planing, periodontal pockets that have formed between your gums and teeth are deep cleaned. Special instruments are used to thoroughly remove all the deposits from the teeth and their roots. At the same time, any diseased soft tissues will be removed so the healthy gums can begin to heal properly.
After scaling and root planing, you may be given some treatments to do at home, such as putting antibacterial gel in the area that has been cleaned. This helps keep new bacteria from growing. The overall goal of scaling and root planing gum disease treatment in Oak Park, IL is to completely sanitize the periodontal pockets, enabling the gums to adhere more naturally to the curves of the teeth. In time, the periodontal pocket depth will be reduced.
