Scaling and Root Planing

Unfortunately, sometimes even proper brushing and flossing is not enough. Nearly 50% of Americans ages 30 and up have gum disease. At Miracle Dental we can perform scaling and root planing if needed to remove trapped plaque and tartar deep below the gumline. The scaling portion of the treatment involves deep cleaning all the way to the innermost part of the gum pocket. Root planing smooths out the gums for optimal healing and reattaching to the teeth.

Scaling and root planing are traditionally performed under local anesthesia with minimal pain or discomfort. Your Miracle Dental care team can provide you with a routine to prevent the inflammation from persisting after the procedure.

Don’t let your gum problems get worse. Get peace of mind with your dental health by giving us a call at (267) 990-8668.
