Professional Dental Cleaning
Appointment consists of removal of plaque, calculus (hardened plaque also known as tartar), and staining. Various instruments are used to remove deposits from teeth to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.
At this session periodontal evaluation, necessary X-rays, exam, and diagnosis of patient's oral health is assessed and discussed with patient.
Scaling and Root Planing
Process that involves removal of hardened plaque (calculus) above and underneath the gums that is not easily removed by brushing and flossing alone. It can be considered a "deeper" cleaning and most likely involve anesthetic (also known as novacaine).
By removing deposits under and above the gums, it promotes maintenance of bone level and tooth attachment. If deposits continue to grow, bone loss and eventual tooth loss will occur.
