Scaling and Root Planing

At Keys Smiles, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy gums as the foundation of a beautiful smile. That’s why we offer comprehensive scaling and root planing services to effectively treat gum disease and restore optimal gum health.

During the scaling phase of the procedure, our skilled dental hygienists use specialized instruments to meticulously remove plaque and tartar deposits from the surfaces of the teeth, both above and below the gum line. This thorough cleaning process eliminates the bacteria and toxins that contribute to gum disease, allowing the gums to heal and reattach to the teeth.

Following scaling, the root planing phase involves smoothing out the rough surfaces of the tooth roots to prevent bacteria from re-adhering and to promote the reattachment of the gums to the tooth roots. This step is crucial for preventing the recurrence of gum disease and supporting long-term periodontal health.

Promotion of Healing: By removing plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line, scaling and root planing promote healing of the gums and reduce inflammation, helping to alleviate symptoms such as bleeding gums and gum recession.

Improved Oral Health: With restored gum health, patients experience improvements in their overall oral health, including fresher breath, reduced tooth sensitivity, and a lower risk of tooth loss associated with advanced gum disease.

At Keys Smiles, we prioritize the well-being of your gums and overall oral health. With our scaling and root planing services, we aim to restore gum health, alleviate discomfort, and preserve your smile for years to come. Trust our experienced team to provide compassionate care and effective treatments tailored to your unique needs.
