Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease is commonly triggered by the accumulation of plaque on the tooth surfaces. To prevent and even reverse the early stages of periodontal disease, our skilled dentist, Dr. James L. Johnson, offers scaling and root planing in West Jordan, Utah. If you’ve noticed initial signs of gum disease, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment by calling our office at 801-255-7800.
Effective Treatment for Gum Disease:
One of the primary treatments recommended by our dentist to combat gum disease is scaling and root planing. This specialized deep dental cleaning aims to eliminate harmful bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your mouth, effectively halting the disease’s progression. It is highly effective, particularly in the early stages of gum disease, and can be combined with other periodontal treatments for comprehensive care. The procedure involves two key steps:
- Scaling: This step focuses on removing plaque and tartar from the tooth surface.
- Root Planing: During this phase, our dentist cleans and smoothens the tooth roots to eliminate bacteria and promote healing.
A Comfortable Treatment Experience:
Most scaling and root planing treatments can be performed without the need for anesthesia, but it is available if necessary for your comfort. For thorough care, we may divide your treatment into multiple appointments, addressing each section of your mouth meticulously.
