Periodontal Scaling & Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the tissue surrounding the teeth, including gum and the tissue that comes between the teeth and the supporting bone. At its worst, periodontal disease can result in losing teeth. It is a slow and painless process, and often most adults with the disease are unaware that they have it.
The main cause of periodontal disease is mainly an accumulation of bacterial plaque under the gum line. Plaque is constantly forming and must be removed regularly to maintain oral health. The bacteria cause tartar, and therefore the gums to become inflamed, which causes periodontal disease.
Periodontal scaling is a procedure to remove the build up of tartar and plaque from the root surface. The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthetic, and the periodontist scales the plaque and tartar from below the gum line using hand instruments or ultrasonic vibrating instruments.
If necessary, this procedure can be performed many times, though if the patients does not look after their teeth with regular cleaning then the procedure is futile.
