Gum Therapy Q & A

by Kumar T. Vadivel, DDS, FDS RCS, MS

Types of Gum Therapy Techniques:

Scaling and Root Planing is a deep cleaning technique that removes the plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line.

You might not know it but your dental hygienist only gets the plaque and tartar that is closest to the surface. They never go down deep enough to remove it all.

A dentist uses hand scalers and ultrasonic instruments in the scaling and root planing process. The procedure can be performed on your entire mouth in a single visit or divided into several different appointments, whereby only one or two quadrants of your mouth is scaled and root planed. Your dentist can tell you the advantages and disadvantages of each of the options.

Here’s how the procedure is done:

  • 1. Before this surgery, the gum is numbed with local anesthesia.?
  • 2. The area under your gum line is cleanedto remove the tartar. The process involves shaping the root of your tooth to prevent further deposits of plaque in the area.
  • 3. Once the process is complete, you go home and wait for the anesthesia to wear off. You then resume normal life and normal eating habits unless your Dentist prescribes some medication or makes certain recommendations.
