Dentist Loop Chicago

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease. The procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. The hygienist will use a special tool to scale the teeth and remove plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. The hygienist will then root plane the teeth to smooth out any rough surfaces. This helps to prevent the bacteria from reattaching to the teeth.

Scaling and root planing is usually performed in two or three appointments. The number of appointments needed will depend on the severity of your gum disease.

A deep cleaning, also known as periodontal debridement, is a more invasive procedure used to treat gum disease. It is typically performed in one or two appointments. During a deep cleaning, the periodontist will remove plaque, tartar, and diseased tissue from the pockets between the teeth and gums. The periodontist will also smooth out the rough surfaces of the tooth roots.

After a deep cleaning, your gums will need to heal. Your periodontist will give you instructions on how to care for your gums at home. Contact Post Family Dental if you need expert periodontal care in Chicago.

Terrific dental office and services. Everyone - the reception, hygienist and dentist are super friendly and attentive. I’ve been seeing Dr. Brian Post for several years for both semi-annual checkups and dental work which has been excellent. Also, for those that drive the two hour parking garage validation makes it super convenient.
