Scaling and Root Planing in Phoenix
While at-home brushing and flossing and routine professional cleanings are essential, these efforts only address plaque and tartar on the exposed surfaces of your teeth and along your gumline. Scaling and root planing, more commonly known as deep cleaning, goes further.
This procedure at AZ Dental is an effective method of addressing gingivitis and early periodontitis. These gum diseases are the most common cause of tooth loss, and they can even have negative impacts on your health beyond your mouth.
We always keep you comfortable during deep cleanings in our offices. The procedure is not very time-consuming, but scaling and root planing can make a big difference in your oral and overall health.
Gum disease often has no obvious signs. However, if you notice swollen gums, bleeding gums, receding gums, or soreness in your mouth, you should call us right away. You can reach AZ Dental at (602) 455-0505.
