Periodontal Care / Scaling & Root Planing in Helotes, TX

At Cedar Springs Dental, Helotes, TX, we recognize the profound importance of periodontal care in safeguarding both your dental and overall health. The health of your gums and the bones that cradle your teeth is the bedrock of a vibrant, healthy mouth. To combat periodontal disease, we offer deep cleanings also known as Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), a non-surgical intervention that meticulously cleans beneath the gum line and refines the tooth root, fostering an environment where gums can heal and reattach more effectively to the tooth surface.

SRP is a testament to our commitment to comprehensive oral care, going beyond the scope of regular dental cleaning to target and eradicate the hidden plaque and tartar that threaten periodontal health. By engaging in this deep cleaning process, we’re not just scraping away harmful substances; we’re also smoothing the roots of your teeth to diminish bacterial niches and promote a healthier, more adherent gum line. This proactive approach is crucial in reducing pocket depths around the teeth and encouraging the natural healing processes of your gums, setting the stage for a healthier mouth and a brighter smile.

The Benefits of Gum Disease Treatment in Helotes

Scaling and root planing at Cedar Springs Dental provides exceptional periodontal care that prevents tooth loss and improves oral health.

The benefits of undergoing periodontal care, particularly deep cleanings, include:

  • Prevention of Tooth Loss: By addressing periodontal disease early through SRP, we can prevent the progression that leads to tooth loss.
  • Improvement of Oral Health and Hygiene: SRP can significantly improve oral health, resulting in fresher breath and a cleaner mouth.
  • Reduction of Inflammation and Promotion of Gum Healing: The procedure reduces gum inflammation, allowing for the natural healing and reattachment of the gums to the tooth surface.
