Periodontical scaling is the removal of tartar and plaque from the surface of the tooth and crown. The periodontist uses special handheld dental tools, such as the dental scaler and curette or an ultrasonic instrument, to remove the plaque buildup. Root planing involves cleaning the root, then smoothing the surface so that the gums may re-attach when healing. Both periodontical scaling and root planing are used to treat patients suffering from mild gum inflammation (gingivitis) and moderate or severe periodontal disease. In addition, a dental hygienist can provide you with deep scale teeth cleaning, one of the best non-surgical procedures to clean and disinfect the gum. During the procedure, we numb your gums for comfort as we work to restore your oral health. Our dental offices are accepting new patients in the San Francisco, CA area.
