Root Scaling and Planing
Practicing good dental hygiene is integral to maintaining a healthy mouth, and while some of us work hard to maintain a gorgeous smile, the same can’t be said for others. While this is common, sometimes a lack of care on our end can lead to more serious issues that a simple cleaning can’t correct, like gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease could lead to bone and tooth loss, as well as other issues. One of the many treatments for gum disease is deep cleaning, and at the Dental Centre, we offer what is known as Root Scaling and Planing — a deep cleaning service to help repair the damage caused by gum disease.
Root scaling is a process where your dentist is able to remove the buildup both above and below your gum line, cleaning deeper than they would during a regular dental cleaning. Root planing is the process of reattaching your roots. While this process can help keep gum disease from getting worse, it may require multiple visits.
The Dental Centre is proud to offer Toronto patients with root scaling and planing services to help treat the damage caused by gum disease. Contact us today to set up an appointment for root scaling and planing in the greater Toronto area!
