The Benefits of Scaling and Root Planing

Molar Tooth and Gums Cross SectionScaling and root planing might not sound like a fun procedure to have done, but it is one that comes with many benefits for those that suffer from gum disease. This treatment is typically used in early stages of gingivitis or as a preventative measure to avoid the risk of having gum disease, but it can be used during all stages of the disease. Among the benefit of eliminating harmful bacteria and plaque, this procedure brings with it many other benefits:

•  Protect your overall health - The plaque and bacteria that cause gum disease are also capable of entering your bloodstream, putting you at risk for heart disease, stroke and respiratory illnesses. When the plaque and bacteria are removed with scaling and root planing, your risk of having these diseases as a result of your oral health is minimized.
•  Prevent bone loss - As gum disease worsens, it weakens the bones in your mouth. This occurs from the plaque and bacteria affecting the bone tissues in your mouth, eventually weakening the bones and causing subsequent tooth loss. Scaling and root planing can remove the plaque and bacteria that have accumulated in the pockets of your gums, preventing the risk of tooth loss.
•  Remove bad breath - Gum disease causes bad breath because of the bacteria that resides in your mouth and on your tongue. When that plaque and bacteria is removed, your bad breath is eliminated, giving you a better taste in your mouth and eliminating the embarrassment you may have felt as a result of your bad breath.
