Think of the mouth as a mirror that reflects the health of your entire body. Gum disease has been connected to a number of health issues, including heart and respiratory conditions, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2. Because the bacteria from periodontal disease can spread through the blood and affect the entire body, it is important to diagnose periodontal disease in its earliest stages, seek the proper treatment to prevent the disease from worsening, and to reverse the damage. Gum disease can be reversed in its early stages with the right treatment, and a proper at-home oral hygiene routine, which includes daily brushing and flossing. During the more advanced stages of periodontal disease, the disease progresses beyond the gum line, damaging the underlying bone and supporting teeth. This is known as periodontitis and severe periodontitis, which can cause serious damage to occur, potentially leading to tooth and bone loss. Regardless of which stage of gum disease you are experiencing, it is imperative to see a periodontist in Simi Valley. With the proper care from a periodontist, gum disease can be treated to restore healthy teeth and gums, and a beautiful smile!

Scaling and Root Planing in Simi Valley

We offer our patients from Simi Valley a range of surgical and non-surgical periodontal therapies to help them resolve their gum conditions. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, surgery may not be necessary, and a comprehensive, deep cleaning, also known as Scaling and Root planing may be sufficient to remove the infection and restore your oral health.

Scaling and Root Planing, also known as a deep cleaning, is a thorough, minimally invasive dental treatment that involves removing the bacterial toxins, plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and smoothing the tooth root surfaces. Scaling is a non-surgical way to treat gum disease and is often referred to as the gold standard in dentistry because of it’s minimally invasive nature that effectively removes the plaque, bacteria and tartar from the teeth below the gumline. Root planing involves smoothing the rough surfaces of the tooth to prevent bacteria from building up on the root surfaces once again, allowing the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the teeth in a healthy, secure way. Some of the most frequently asked questions we receive are: how often do you need scaling and root planing? Is deep cleaning the same as scaling and root planing? Is scaling and root planing painful? and will deep cleaning stop gum disease? 

Scaling and Root cleaning is a deep cleaning performed by a dental specialist who is trained to clean the buildup of bacteria, plaque and tartar from below the gum line and root surfaces to reverse the effects of gum disease. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, which will numb your gums to limit the pain and discomfort felt during the treatment. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, the treatment will most likely be completed over multiple visits to your periodontist in Simi Valley. 

If you suffer from gum disease, scaling and root planing may be the right treatment for you. Contact us today to schedule your periodontal consultation to determine the right treatment plan!
