Root Planing FAQ

Root planing is a non-surgical dental procedure that involves deep cleaning the tooth’s root surfaces to treat gum disease and improve overall oral health.

Candidates for root planing typically have early to moderate gum disease with symptoms like gum inflammation, bleeding, or tenderness.

Root planing is performed under local anesthesia, so you should not feel pain during the procedure. Some post-treatment discomfort may occur, but it is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relief.

The duration of root planing can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed. Typically, it may take one to two hours per quadrant of the mouth.

Recovery time varies, but most people can return to their normal activities the same day or the day after the procedure. Any post-treatment discomfort should subside within a few days.

Root planing is generally safe, but there may be some risks, such as infection or tooth sensitivity. Your dentist will discuss these risks with you before the procedure.

If gum disease is left untreated, it can progress, leading to tooth loss and potentially affecting your overall health. Root planing can help prevent these complications and maintain your oral well-being.

Our Process -- And Yours

Non-surgical treatment, the method of choice for early-stage gum disease, essentially amounts to a deep, professional cleaning of the teeth that gets at the tartar under the gumline and includes the application of a local antimicrobial.

Vigilance (yours)
It's important to be vigilant for gum disease because it can be painless, revealing itself only when valuable treatment time has been lost.
1
Local anesthesia (if needed)
Root-planing and scaling clean down to the roots. We may use a local anesthetic to make you more comfortable.
2
Root-planing and scaling (deep-cleaning)
If diagnosed in the early stages, the preferred and more conservative (i.e., non-invasive) option is scaling and root-planing.
3
Anti-microbial application
We proactively apply an antimicrobial to the affected areas to kill and guard against any bacteria there that could pose a setback.
4
Ongoing home care and vigilance
You establish and make a habit of a rigorous home dental-health regimen that includes thorough brushing and flossing, and ongoing vigilance for flare-ups.
