Periodontal disease is progressive. If left untreated, it gets worse over time and it will eventually result in tooth loss. Early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease is the key to prevent it from progressing. Periodontal scaling root planing in Muttontown is a periodontal procedure that is commonly done by a professional periodontist like Warren C. Baine, DMD in the early stages of periodontal disease for this purpose.
Scaling and root planing in Muttontown is a non-surgical procedure to treat periodontal disease. The main purpose of this non-surgical procedure is to remove all agents that cause gingival inflammation and disease, such as dental tartar and plaque. During the procedure, a qualified periodontist like Dr. Baine thoroughly cleans between the gums and teeth all the way down to the roots. The procedure is typically performed to treat gingivitis and can be used to treat moderate to severe periodontal disease. During scaling, the periodontist removes the plaque from the tooth by scraping the tartar from above and below the gum line. Planing involves removing rough spots where germs gather, which helps remove the bacteria that contributes to the disease.
