In addition to regular brushing and flossing, your teeth and gums periodically require professional cleaning. Periodontal diseases begin with plaque formation on your teeth both above and below the gum line. This causes inflammation and swelling of gum tissue.
During a regular dental visit, your dentist or hygienist uses a scaling instrument to remove plaque and calculus above and below the gum line. Removing the plaque and calculus helps to prevent inflammation, which could otherwise lead to the advancement of periodontal disease.
This procedure is important for maintaining good oral health and preventing gum disease. We use the latest technology and equipment to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
