Scaling & Root Planing In Newnan, GA

Comprehensive Cleaning at the Gum Line for Gum Disease Treatment.

Plaque and tartar can accumulate on your teeth and along the gum line, especially in hard-to-reach areas. During regular cleanings, hygienists perform scaling and polishing to prevent tartar and plaque from causing additional harm. However, in certain cases, gum disease may have progressed beyond the surface, necessitating a scaling and root planing procedure. Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical approach to treating periodontal disease. This procedure thoroughly cleans below the gum line, promotes root health, and addresses gum recession.

What is Scaling & Root Planing?

The Benefits of Scaling & Root Planing:

1 Address periodontal disease without the need for surgery.

2 Revert the harmful effects of gum disease.

3 Reestablish the overall health of your smile and gums.

4 Prevent dental decay.

5 Significantly decrease the risk of more severe gum or tooth issues.

The Process:


Manage comfort levels.

As your gums may already be tender, we take great care to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. We use a local anesthetic to prepare and numb your teeth and gums.


Remove hidden buildup. 

With surgical-like precision, we will meticulously eliminate all plaque and tartar buildup that has extended below the gum line. Our goal is to ensure the pocket beneath the gum line is free of any obstructions to prevent further discomfort or disease.


Encourage healthy roots.

In cases of periodontal diseases, the ideal connection between gums and teeth can be compromised. Gum tissue is meant to snugly embrace teeth. During this stage, we will delicately smooth out the roots to encourage your gums and teeth to regain their close connection. Smoothing the roots also discourages bacteria, tartar, or plaque from reattaching to the gum line and causing further harm. 


Schedule a follow-up.

Once the cleaning process is finished, we will schedule an appointment to evaluate the condition of your gums. If the issue has been effectively addressed, you should already observe improvements in the appearance and tenderness of your gums.


Check on your gums.

During your follow-up appointment, we will assess whether additional intervention is required. If your gum issues have not been adequately addressed, we will discuss the next steps for treating your gums.
