Enjoy a Healthier Mouth with Scaling and Root Planing
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that inhabit the plaque on your teeth. These bacteria irritate the gums, causing swelling and bleeding, followed by a widening of the periodontal pockets. If allowed to progress without gum disease treatment, the infection will cause gum recession, as well as the loss of teeth and bone.
How Scaling and Root Planing Protects Your Mouth
Schedule a consultation with Drs. Kantor and DiGiacinto to treat gum disease without the need for gum surgery in Mt. Kisco, NY. Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning that removes bacteria and reverses the symptoms of gum disease. Scaling is a method of removing the plaque and tartar that forms on your teeth below the gum line while planing smoothes the bone, correcting the rough areas and pitting created by the bacteria. This gum disease treatment is highly effective, often with rapidly improved results. Your mouth will feel cleaner and healthier after a single session.
After your initial session, your periodontist may recommend these gum disease treatments at regular intervals to prevent re-infection, depending upon the severity of your condition.
