Scaling and Root Planing Periodontic Dentistry Treatment in Casper, WY
If you are suffering from periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, Brook Trout Dental can help. We are highly experienced in providing periodontic dentistry through scaling and root planing in Casper, Wyoming.
Deep Cleaning With Periodontal Therapy
The objective of gum therapy is to eliminate the underlying cause of inflammation. By utilizing this gum treatment to remove dental plaque and hardened tartar (calculus), we allow your gums to heal.
Periodontal scaling includes the removal of plaque, calculus, and stain from the crown and root surfaces of your teeth. Root planing, on the other hand, gets rid of the roughened cementum and surface dentin that is impregnated with calculus, microorganisms, and their toxins.
Scaling and root planing are often referred to as deep cleaning, and they can be performed using both ultrasonic instruments and hard instruments. After your root planing and scaling procedure, we may also prescribe medication to help treat any infection.
Periodontic Dentistry Improves Gum Health
Gum disease is not always readily apparent during its very early stages, so the best way to know if you have it is to visit our Casper, WY, team for regular checkups twice a year. During your oral health exam, we can let you know if you have gum disease or are at risk of developing gum disease.
You should also call us for an immediate appointment if you notice any of the following signs of gum disease:
- Gums bleeding when you brush your teeth
- Red, tender, or swollen gums
- Receding gums, aka shrinking gums around your teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Loose teeth
- New spaces appear between your teeth
