Your teeth are the one vital component of your human body, which will stay with you for an eternity. Any manner of problems or troubles in your teeth will render you incapable, or at the very least, in a state of problems, while eating food or talking. Needless to say, any one of us would not wish to be surrounded with any such conditions. Thus, it becomes absolutely necessary to ensure that your teeth are maintained in good health and any problems with the same are identified at early stages, which will help in avoiding any complications in the future. This is what every dentist at your preferred dental clinic, Northridge Advanced Dentistry, will tell you and ask you to do everything that is in your ability to keep your teeth free of damages.
For this purpose, deep cleaning and scaling are too popular dental treatments which are proposed by dentists for helping patients. Get to know more about these dental treatments which are offered at Northridge Advanced Dentistry by Dr Isaac Kashani.
What is scaling and deep cleaning of teeth?
Scaling and deep cleaning are two non surgical dental treatments, which count as the very first step of any dental treatment. It takes almost two to four visits to perform the complete treatment, which is used to clean the depths of the teeth and make them free of any type of deposits. As a result, the presence of bacteria in the teeth is reduced, which can significantly lower the incidence of dental infections and ill health among the patients.
The question that arises at this point is, how exactly do, dental scaling and root planing help in preventing the diseases of the gums!
As per a recent study, it has been found that almost half of the world’s population already suffers from diseases of the gum and the number is not likely to go on a decline anytime soon. The problem with any type of gum diseases is that they do not stop with the gum and start spreading around the surrounding teeth and reach the bones of the teeth as well. This is why, it is advisable to visit your dentist regularly and let them check your teeth for signs of any damage and decay.
During a typical root planing and deep cleaning session, Dr Isaac Kashani will remove bacterial toxins from your teeth, along with any tartar. Sometimes, in several cases, the gum pockets go quite deep, for which, root planing may be essential. This will be needed to remove the harder section of tartar and surface dentin, which will help in making all rough spaces on the teeth smooth once again. This will aid in keeping bacteria, plaque and tartar away from the roots of the teeth and allow the gums to heal once again.
When do you need root planing and deep cleaning?
When a gum disease begins in the teeth, generally the patient is unable to catch any signs and symptoms of its appearance. Visiting your dentists at Northridge Advanced Dentistry at regular intervals is perhaps the only sure shot way to catch them while they can still be controlled. Often, patients rely upon hard brushing and flossing their teeth to get rid of the accumulated plaque, which might not be possible. This is when they would typically require a scaling session, which will act to reduce the incidence and impact of the gum disease. Scaling procedures are usually different from regular deep cleaning since it involves cleaning and working upon the area of the teeth which lies below the gums. An advanced form of such gum disease may require a root planing procedure to be carried out by Dr Isaac Kashani.
Take a look at some of the common symptoms that your teeth might exhibit, directing you to visit your dentists and ask for their advice:
- Bleeding of the gums
- Swelling in the gums
- Appearance of red and sensitive gums
- Pain in the teeth and gums while brushing and flossing
- Recession of the gums
- Discoloration of the gums
- Pain in the teeth or the gums
- Bad breath which refuses to go away even after using brush and mouth wash on a regular basis.
The best way to know if you need a root planing or deep cleaning treatment is to visit Northridge Advanced Dentistry and ask Dr Isaac Kashani for their advice on the matter. With their years of experience in the field and advanced tools and machinery, they will be able to assess and guide you whether your teeth are suffering from any dental problems. Give them a chance to cure your teeth of any problems that you might be facing.
Taking care of your teeth after the treatment
Maintaining teeth in an optimum state of health is essential to leading a pain free and comfortable life. If you have any existing issues with your teeth, it is strongly advisable that you visit us at Northridge Advanced Dentistry and ask our expert dentists, Dr Isaac Kashani, to help you get rid of them. After you have undergone a typical root planing and deep cleaning session with Dr Isaac Kashani, you will need to take care of your teeth so that they do not fall under the impression of any further dental problems. Take a look at some of the most important tips and care techniques that you will need to adopt for a fresh and healthy smile and dental health of your teeth.
- Follow a religious and regular dental health care routine that takes care of your teeth.
- Make it a point to visit your dentists at Northridge Advanced Dentistry at regular intervals, where they can treat your teeth and assess them for any signs of impending damage and decay.
- Make it a habit to brush your teeth a minimum of two times in a day, so that residue particles of food can be eliminated from your teeth, leaving no grounds for bacteria to cause decay and damage.
- Fall into the habit of replacing your brush every while after the bristles of your brush have worn out. This will ensure that your brush performs optimally and continues to provide you with the protection that your teeth require.
- It is important to remove hidden plaque from between your teeth, which makes it important to use a floss on a regular basis. You must floss between your teeth daily.
- In some cases, Dr Isaac Kashani might also recommend the use of a mouthwash to some patients. If you have been prescribed the use of a mouthwash, then make sure that you include it at least twice in your oral health care routine.
By including these simple steps in your dental health care routine, you can keep infections and decay at bay and give yourself a healthy set of teeth to eat and talk with.
How do scaling and root planing work?
Commonly, dentists at Northridge Advanced Dentistry will give you a mild sedation to numb the area of the jaw, where the treatment has to be carried out. This might not be needed in all cases, especially when a patient is already undergoing a treatment for gum disease. Also, in the cases of mild gingivitis, a sedation may not be necessary.
When it comes to scaling, Dr Isaac Kashani will start by eliminating any plaque or tartar from the surface of your teeth. This will also be done for the area around your gums, on the surface of the teeth and at the roots of each tooth. At Northridge Advanced Dentistry, a special ultrasonic scaling tool is used by Dr Isaac Kashani to carry out the above mentioned process.
After this, another tool will be used by Dr Isaac Kashani to smoothen the surfaces of your teeth and the roots, which will further eliminate all infections from the base of the teeth. Smoothening out the surface of the teeth also has the advantage of reducing the chances of recurrence of bacteria and toxins in the teeth.
This treatment is carried out over several appointments, since a gum disease is a chronic disease. Therefore, you might have often heard people telling you that scaling and root planing takes time at a dentist’s. If needed, the treatment might be combined with various healing methods to aid in quick and better healing of the teeth as well. With each visit, the team at Northridge Advanced Dentistry will ensure that signs of gum disease are receding and not recurring, and that the healing of the teeth and the gums are taking place in the correct manner.
What are the advantages of scaling and root planing?
There are many health benefits of scaling and root planing. These dental treatments are most beneficial to people who are suffering from low to mild levels of gum diseases. Scaling and root planing are also essential for people who suffer from periodontitis, which is a very severe form of gum diseases. For these patients, the treatment may gain even more importance, since they battle inflammation of their gums and the risk of undergoing harmful dental infections, on a daily basis.
Here are some of the most common and important advantages of root planing and scaling, which will help you make up your mind about undergoing these dental treatments:
- You get a set of much more cleaner teeth, which appear more attractive, once the plaque and tartar has been eliminated from them.
- Removing harmful bacteria, which is the root cause of infections in the mouth and the teeth, also enhances the freshness of the breath of the patient.
- Since gum diseases paves way for many other host diseases, such as heart diseases, diabetes, loss of memory, and other, patients can also witness a reduction in the incidence of such diseases.
- The risk of tooth decay also reduces drastically.
- Gum diseases in the patient can be avoided in the future.
- Incidence of tooth loss, associated with the occurrence of gum diseases, can be reduced drastically.
