Scaling and Root Planing in Lake Jackson
Periodontal treatment is a vital aspect of protecting your teeth from serious problems that might lead to tooth loss, especially periodontal disease (gum disease). Periodontal care focuses on the sensitive gum tissue around the teeth, which secure and supply blood to the bone and each tooth in your mouth.
A special type of cleaning called scaling and root planing is one such treatment that helps to combat periodontal disease.
Periodontal scaling and root planing is performed to reverse moderate gum disease. Done promptly, it can protect teeth that have been affected by infection and erosion of gum tissue. During this procedure, your dentist will work to thoroughly eliminate the deep infection.
