Welcome to The Dental Practice, where we offer comprehensive scaling and root planning services in Burwood, NSW. Our skilled dental team is dedicated to providing effective periodontal treatments to enhance the oral health and well-being of our patients.
What is Scaling and Root planning?
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical deep cleaning procedure designed to treat periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease. This treatment targets the removal of plaque and tartar from the surfaces of teeth and their roots, promoting gum healing and preventing further progression of the disease.
During the scaling phase, our dental professionals utilise specialised tools to meticulously remove plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. This process effectively eliminates the bacterial toxins that contribute to gum inflammation and disease progression.
The root planing phase involves smoothing the tooth roots to discourage the accumulation of plaque and tartar, facilitating the reattachment of the gums to the teeth. This step aims to prevent the advancement of periodontal disease and promote the healing of the gum tissues.
