We at Dr.Mootha’s Advanced Dental Care provide oral hygiene care by scaling and root planning with modern machineries and equipments. Solving your bad breath problems has just become easy.

Scaling and root planing ??

otherwise known as conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy, or deep cleaning, is the process of removing or eliminating the etiologic agents – dental plaque, its products, and calculus – which cause inflammation, thus helping to establish a periodontium that is free of disease. Periodontal scalers and periodontal curettes are some of the tools involved.

Root planing involves detailed scaling of the root surface to decrease inflammation of the gum tissue. The dentist scales the root surface to smooth out rough target areas, biofilm development and eliminating plaque.

Plaque

Plaque is a soft yellow-grayish substance that adheres to the tooth surfaces including removable and fixed restorations.  It is an organised bio-film that is primarily composed of bacteria in a matrix of glycoproteins and extracellular polysaccharides. This matrix makes it impossible to remove the plaque by rinsing or using sprays. Materia alba is similar to plaque but it lacks the organized structure of plaque and hence easily displaced with rinses and sprays.

All individuals develop plaque and materia alba. Through regular brushing and flossing, these organized colonies of bacteria are disturbed and eliminated from the oral cavity. In general, the more effective one’s brushing, flossing, and other oral homecare practices, the less plaque will accumulate on the teeth. However, if, after 24 hours in the oral environment, biofilm remains undisturbed by brushing or flossing, it begins to absorb the mineral content of saliva. Through this absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the saliva, oral biofilm transforms from the soft, easily removable plaque into a hard substance known as calculus. Commonly known as ‘tartar’, calculus provides a base for new layers of plaque biofilm to settle on and builds up over time.  Calculus is harder than bone and cannot be removed by brushing or flossing.

Effectiveness

A scaling and root planing procedure is to be considered effective if the patient is subsequently able to maintain their periodontal health without further bone or attachment loss and prevent recurrent infection with periodontal pathogens. We take pride in teaching you brushing technique, flossing, powered water flosser and oral hygiene instructions.
