Tucson Scaling & Root Planing Treatments

Promote the Healthy Oral Hygiene You Need!

Gum disease is not only harmful to your teeth but is also associated with other diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. At Desert Dental Group, our dentist offers ways to address gum disease, including scaling and root planing treatments in Tucson, as well as the Vail, Eastside Tucson, and Rita Ranch areas. If you suffer from gum disease, we encourage you to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Brett M. Barney by calling our office today!

Maintaining Optimal Gum Health

Scaling and root planing is one of the most common and effective treatments recommended for gum disease before it becomes severe.

This is a deep cleaning treatment that includes two main steps:

  • Scaling: In scaling, we remove plaque and tartar (dental calculus) from the tooth surface.
  • Root Planing: This step involves cleaning the roots of the teeth, smoothing the root to remove bacterial toxins.

The goals of scaling and root planing are to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar, and to halt the progress of the disease. While most scaling and root planing treatments can be completed comfortably without anesthetic, our dentist is happy to offer anesthetic and other comfort options to make certain that you feel at ease during your treatment. The scaling and root planing treatment may be split up into several appointments, in which we treat one section of the mouth at each appointment.

Gentle & Compassionate Care

Scaling and root planing may be combined with other types of periodontal therapy, such as antibiotic treatment. For most patients, scaling and root planing is enough to prevent periodontal disease from progressing further.

For more information about the benefits of our Tucson scaling and root planing services, and to learn more about the other types of periodontal treatment we offer, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Call (520) 201-1717 today!
