Periodontal SRP : Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root planning is a periodontal therapy to eliminate chronic periodontal disease. This is a non-surgical gum therapy, a procedure commonly known as “deep cleaning.”

 

The recommended measurement from the top of the gumline to the point where the gum attaches to the tooth is no more than 1-3 mm. Due to severe and chronic periodontal disease or at time due to less than acceptable oral hygiene, bacterial plaque and tartar accumulates around the gums while slowly making inroads to under the gum. This affects the health of the gum and leads to periodontal disease that may cause deeper pockets to from.

 

i2m Dental performs this procedure in one pain free visit. Thereafter, please follow the post procedure maintenance provided to you at the time of your visit.
