Scaling and Root Planing

At Hamilton Periodontics, we understand the significance of maintaining excellent oral health for both the aesthetics of your smile and your overall well-being.

Scaling and Root Planing, often referred to as a deep cleaning, is a dental procedure designed to combat gum disease and preserve the longevity of your teeth. Scaling involves the removal of plaque and tartar from below the gumline, where regular brushing and flossing can't reach. Root planing then smooths out the tooth roots, making it more challenging for bacteria to accumulate while creating a smooth surface for gums to adhere.

Benefits of Scaling and Root Planing:

  • Gum Disease Control: Non-surgical and minimally invasive method to treat gum disease.
  • Tooth Preservation: By preventing further damage, it helps save your natural teeth.
  • Improved Breath: Helps eliminate a potential bacterial cause of persistent bad breath.

Our dental team ensures your Scaling and Root Planing experience is as comfortable as possible and tailored to your specific needs.
