What is the scaling?

Teeth scaling represents a careful and complete cleaning of the surfaces of the roots of the affected teeth with periodontal bags. The purpose is to eradicate the bacterial plaque and the dental tartar from these deep deposits, perfectly smoothing the affected root surface. When dealing with advanced forms of periodontal disease, with large bone loss (over 3-4 mm), it can be intervened to stop it from evolving. This means that the disease will remain at the same stage in terms of bone and gingival loss.

Scaling procedures

The procedure consists of cleaning with the help of a special tool the damaged tissue between the gum and the bone and washing with antiseptic substances of this area for bacterial removal. The intervention is not painful, is performed under anesthesia. Depending on the stage of the disease, this work may need to be repeated every 2-3 months. Radical scaling and planar treatment is the method of non-surgical periodontal treatment, practically a deep cleaning of the surfaces of the roots of the teeth, which eliminate at a “micro” level the etiological factors of the disease – bacterial plaque and dental tartar. Scaling is a meticulous procedure performed with both piezo-ultrasound and manual devices through special tools. Root planing smoothes the tooth root, eliminating bacterial accumulations that maintain and potentiate periodontal disease. Sterilization of periodontal bags is done with the help of the dental laser.
