About Dental Scaling and Root Planing in India
The need and reason for Dental Scaling and Root Planing procedure has to be understood by patients on a larger perspective without confusing it with the simple teeth cleaning, a procedure which is also performed at India Dental Clinic.

Scaling and Root Planing is actually the first treatment for periodontal disease It removes all of the irritants under the gums to eliminate inflammations and infection.

The dentist approach of India Dental Clinic for the Scaling and Root Planing is same as it is aimed at, i.e. removing tartar and hard crusty calculus from around and below the gum line. Professional polishing, also known as prophy, removes only the soft sticky plaque that forms above the gum line. In this method gum disease is treated when pockets are formed around the teeth having a measurement of greater than 3mm.

The Dental Scaling in India
Scaling is the procedure used to meticulously remove plaque and tartar that is below the gumline by the chosen listed dentist/hygienist at dental care clinic in India. This is done to remove biofilm, calculus, and toxin down to the bottom of each periodontal pocket in order to obtain a healing response. The area is generally made numb by the use of a strong local anesthetic in order to reduce patient discomfort.
