Periodontitis requires concentrated work in order to heal the gums. Here we will go over the most common procedure for cleaning under the gum line.
What is Scaling and Planing?
Scaling and root planing teeth, provided by either your dentist or dental hygienist, may take more than one appointment to complete, and a local anesthetic is often used to minimize any discomfort. The procedure involves thoroughly scaling all plaque, bacterial toxins and tartar deposits from your teeth and root surfaces; and then root planing, which smoothens all rough areas on your roots’ surfaces. Smooth root surfaces keep bacteria, plaque and tartar from re-adhering underneath the gum line, allowing your gums to heal and reattach themselves more firmly. This treatment will help your gums recover and grow healthy, if proper care is taken afterward.
When is it Needed?
Healthy gum tissue fits tightly around each tooth. The measurement from the top of the gum line to where it attaches to the tooth should only be 1 to 3 millimeters in depth. But, when bacterial plaque and tartar accumulate around and under the gums, tissues that support your teeth may be affected and periodontal disease can develop causing deeper pockets to form. When you have more advanced signs of gum disease (bad breath, heavy tartar buildup and unhealthy pocket depths of 4mm or more), your dentist may recommend scaling and root planing as the first procedure necessary to treat the condition.

Many people looking to restore their smile have questions about the best way to have their teeth whitening. The benefits of in-office whitening services speak for themselves.
In-office teeth whitening, also known as power bleaching or power whitening, are carefully monitored allowing the procedure to be safe, controlled, and pain-free while using a high concentration of bleaching gel. Such a high concentration of bleaching gel allows dramatic results immediately. Unlike Home-use whitening systems, in-office whitening procedures yields faster results and the safest form of tooth bleaching. Gum and tooth sensitivity are also more controllable today due to thicker peroxide gels. In-office whitening is a much better solution than expensive home kits. We use lasers and powerful whitening agents to get the best results.
Professional teeth whitening removes persistent stains and brightens your smile, leaving you with more self-confidence and less embarrassment about your dingy smile. You will no longer feel the need to smile with a closed mouth or shield your teeth when laughing or talking. You can show your smile off with confidence and finally feel proud of the way you look. Plus, getting your teeth whitening performed by a professional at Gardens Family Dentistry is much safer and effective than using an over-the-counter whitening product.

Even if your teeth are straight, if they appear stained or discolored, it can affect your smile and self-esteem. Whitening your teeth can instantly take years off of your appearance and boost your self-confidence. Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening. At Gardens Family Dentistry, your 33410 dental office, Dr. Dalia Al-Azzawi can help restore your bright smile.
Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the 33410 dental office. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.
At our 33410 dental office we offer two exceptional options for tooth whitening. You can choose either an in-office tooth whitening procedure or a professional take home system. Both of these are top-of the-line systems. However, the biggest advantage of the in-office procedure is that in as little as one hour you can achieve a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter than the original color of your teeth. Our professional strength take home system also produces excellent results. However, this is achieved by way of a more gradual process. Our take home kit may be prescribed alone, or after an in-office treatment to perfect or maintain the in-office result. If you have been considering whitening your teeth for a winning smile, call us today for an appointment.
