Under your gums are the roots of your teeth that are embedded in your jawbone, which is precisely where the periodontal disease could be hiding. Once the bacterial infection destroys the gums, it moves on to the roots of your teeth and then the bone that keeps your teeth attached to your jawbone.
When you are recommended a deep gingival scaling, it is nothing but a deep cleaning which takes the bacteria off the infected roots of the teeth and also cleans the inside of the gum that touches the root. By cleaning both of these sites in your mouth and letting them heal tightly back together, the pockets that were developed because of the infection are reduced and the teeth are back to being healthy again.
Scaling and root planing, also known as conventional periodontal therapy, is a non-surgical periodontal therapy. It involves the removal of dental plaque and calculus which is precisely known as scaling or debridement. The scaled site is then smoothed. This is all done by a cutting edge machine known as a scaler which assists the periodontists to treat the condition with precision and care.
