Deep Scaling and Curettage

deepscalingTo stop gum disease from progressing, we may advise periodontal therapy, or deep cleaning. This gets rid of the bacteria in the pocket and provides the necessary conditions for healing to occur.

There is some confusion about the difference between scaling and root planing. Scaling is basically the process of removing dental tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. Curettage or root planing is the process of smoothening the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure.

The procedure is usually done under local anaesthetic so therefore it is painless.
