Scaling and Rootplaning

Pittsburgh Dental Spa offers scaling and rootplaning to restore gum health.  This procedure is done to remove excess plaque and bacteria that has formed on the tooth and around the gum line. Using an ultrasonic scaler, periodontal hand scalers, or curettes, our dental hygienist will carefully scrape along the visible surface of the tooth, which removes any plaque and also helps to smooth the tooth surface so it is more resistant to build up in the future. Depending on the exact condition of the teeth, such as if infection has set in below the gums, the patient may require a deep cleaning. This involves performing scaling and planing on the root of the tooth below the gum line. At Pittsburgh Dental Spa our dental hygienist takes extra care to be very gentle while she performs this, and many patients feel no pain as the tools gently slip between the tooth and gum, but a mild anesthetic is sometimes used if it helps to relieve patient stress.

Reviews from real patients:

If heaven had dentist offices…. this would be one of them. Dr. Runco and his every one of his staff are amazing at making a patient feel comfortable. I just underwent a pill sedation procedure and I am happy to say that I was pretty much knocked out through the entire thing. As someone who would cry and shake going into a dental appointment before, I cannot believe that my fears have been eliminated now. I was also pleasantly surprised by how reasonable the pricing is for such an exceptional place. I never thought I would be able to afford sedation dentistry before. There is not a single thing I would change about this place, other than the fact that it is a little far from me, but it’s well worth the drive.
