Our Sacramento and Elk Grove practice specializes in family dentistry, and we help patients with gingivitis, halitosis and moderate to severe periodontitis with safe and comfortable scaling and root planing options. With over a decade of serving our community with affordable dental care, Dr. Van Dang, DDS and our staff of dental professionals are committed to protecting your oral health and helping you to maintain a beautiful smile.

What is Scaling & Root Planing?

Patients seeking a non-surgical procedure to effectively cure periodontal disease often choose scaling and root planing. Scaling is a treatment that removes calculus and plaque from the area of your teeth just below the gum line. Dr. Dang uses an ultrasonic scaling tool that comfortably removes the tartar along your roots and applies antibiotic fibers below your gums to prevent infection and promote a quicker recovery time.

New Dental Images recommends root planing when X-rays and an oral examination show that surface dentin and cementum is compacted around your roots along with bacteria, toxins, and tartar. The dental professionals in our Sacramento and Elk Grove office will smooth your roots to heal your teeth and prevent the bacteria from returning.

Scaling & Root Planing for Gum Disease

Gingivitis, or inflammation of your gums, occurs when dental plaque builds up, causing your gums to become irritated. New Dental Images recommends scaling and root planing to treat gum disease because it effectively cleans between your gums down to the roots of your teeth. In cases where the pockets of tartar and bacteria exceed 3 mm, Dr. Dang will use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during this deep cleaning process.

After your root planing and scaling procedure, our periodontal care professionals will provide you with a plan to maintain your dental health after the treatment – including a daily cleaning regimen and a schedule of regular checkups. Following this plan will ensure that the gum disease does not return. After your gums heal, you will see noticeable results, including firm, healthy-looking pink gums and cleaner-looking teeth.

How Root Planing & Scaling Helps Our Patients

There are many benefits of choosing an oral care plan that includes root planing and scaling. In addition to curing periodontal and gum disease, these treatments can protect your overall health. They can prevent periodontal infections that have the potential of spreading to your heart and respiratory system through your bloodstream. New Dental Images’ root planing and scaling methods also help to prevent tooth loss. When the size of your gum pockets exceeds 3 mm, bacteria can more easily colonize. Your body fights this, and ultimately destroys your gum and bone tissues, which can lead to tooth loss. Finally, this gentle procedure protects the beauty of your smile, and reduces bad breath by removing offending bacteria from your gums and roots.
