Scaling & Polishing

Scaling and polishing is basically the process of removing calculus and other hard debris from the tooth surface. It is recommended that scaling and polishing is done once every 6 months at least to ensure proper periodontal health. Calculus is a hard, calcified substance that accumulates on teeth regardless of tooth brushing efficiency. Once formed, calculus can only be removed by a dental professional, tooth brushing will not remove it. However, proper tooth brushing can decrease the quantity and frequency by which calculus is formed. Calculus causes gum inflammation, loss of bone support, among many others. As opposes public myth, removal of calculus does not remove a layer from the tooth, in fact none of the gum therapies do so. For more information ask your dentist about calculus.

Curretage & Root Planning

When a tooth starts losing its support or gets periodontally ill, a process of cleaning the root surface and the gums is necessary, this process is called curettage and root planning. Only infected debris is removed during this procedure and, occasionally, splinting may be required. The root surface is cleaned to allow the previously diseased gum tissue to reattach to it. For more information please inquire about curettage and periodontal therapy.

Splinting

In accordance with curettage and root planning, sometimes splinting is required. Splinting is the process of bonding the loose, diseased teeth to other ones, forming one strong unit to resist forces in the oral cavity. This procedure enhances healing of periodontally affected teeth and has no effect on the healthy ones. Please ask your dentist about splinting for further information.
