Scaling & Root Planing – Dallas, TX

Saving Your Oral Health by Eliminating Gum Disease

If you’ve recently learned you have an advanced form of gum disease known as periodontitis, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sadeghi for scaling & root planing in East Dallas. This procedure works by saving your oral health and eliminating gum disease. As a non-surgical procedure, it removes the plaque and tartar that cause inflammation and infection. With successful treatment, you can prevent bone and tooth loss, as well as restore the health of your gums for a complete, beautiful smile.

What is Scaling & Root Planing?

To determine if scaling & root planing is a necessary procedure, Dr. Sadeghi will perform a full examination of your entire mouth, checking your teeth and gums. If necessary, she will suggest x-rays to view what problems are occurring beneath the visible portions of your mouth. Some of the factors that can determine if you need this type of dental procedure include:

Once she concludes that you need scaling & root planing, you will receive local anesthesia or sedation, depending on your individual needs.

During the scaling portion of the procedure, you can expect your dentist in East Dallas to remove any plaque and tartar that is attached to the surface of your teeth. Targeting the area beneath the gum line, near the root, we’ll use a specialized tool to remove the bacterial infection and prevent it from returning.

Once scaling is complete, we’ll move on to root planing. This removes the cementum and surface dentin, smoothing the root of your tooth. Not only does this encourage healing, but it helps to prevent bacteria from forming in the future.
