Scaling & Root Planing

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease begins as gingivitis, marked by red, swollen gums that may bleed easily and can advance to periodontitis, where the gums and bone that support the teeth become seriously damaged. The progression of gum disease can lead to tooth loss and has been connected to other health issues, underscoring the critical nature of early and effective treatment. Scaling and root planing in SW Calgary at Renew Dental is designed to halt the disease’s progression, meticulously cleaning the pockets of bacteria that threaten oral health.

Scaling & Root Planing Procedure

The procedure involves two main steps: scaling, where plaque and tartar are carefully removed from below the gumline, and root planing, which smoothes the tooth roots to help the gums reconnect to the teeth. Dr. Keith Lawson utilizes his extensive experience and gentle techniques to ensure the procedure is as comfortable and effective as possible. Patients can trust in the thoroughness of care, as the goal is to treat and educate on maintaining gum health post-procedure.

Benefits of Scaling & Root Planing

One of the primary benefits of scaling and root planing is the significant reduction in inflammation and bleeding of the gums, which, when left unchecked, can lead to more severe health complications. Additionally, this deep cleaning process can arrest the progression of gum disease, preventing tooth loss and contributing to overall health. Patients who undergo scaling and root planing at Renew Dental often report a marked improvement in their oral health, with many experiencing a reduction in discomfort and an improvement in their gums’ appearance and health.
