What is scaling and root planing?

Dental plaque is a white substance that is created on the teeth surface after eating. Bacteria place on the tooth plaque; these bacteria use particles of sweet beverages and foods, and then produce acid. This acid causes damage to teeth and gum, as a result the gums become inflamed and infectious. This bacteria products and plaques cannot be removed only by brushing, but the dentist can do it through scaling and root planing. This method is considered as a relatively invasive method, but it is a good option to prevent the need for gum surgery. According to reliable references, this practice is a gold standard for treating patients with chronic periodontitis.

• People who experience significant issues with tartar and plaque on their teeth, putting them at risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

The dentist will check medical history and all the medications. Due to the risk of infection after the surgery, the dentist will prescribe prophylaxis antibiotics especially in patients with endocarditis (a kind of heart disease) or patients with artificial implants in their body like artificial heart valve or whom with weakened immune system. Antibiotics are also necessary if the patient had a major surgery recently.
