Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
The primary role played by Scaling and Root Planing (SRP) is to perform a deep cleaning of your gingival tissues, i.e. gums, to help you get rid of the inflammations. The most common problems that are treated under the SRP procedure are removing the plaque and tartar. If our dentists at the Dental Specialists of Pembroke Pines find that you are suffering from a severe periodontal disease, you will be given a local anesthesia followed by the deep cleaning of your gums and roots.
Scaling and Root Planing are one of the most efficient ways of deep cleaning of your gums without any surgery. Before suggesting you the SRP process, our dentists, Dr. Reynaldo Pita and Dr. Charles Krikorian will examine your teeth and inform you about the level of oral disease you are suffering from. If you have wide gum pockets, you will have to undergo the deep cleaning procedure to control your gum disease to spread further.
