Root planing involves detailed scaling of the root surface to decrease inflammation of the gum tissue so that way any excessive or uneven gums is out of sight. The procedure helps prevent gum disease as well which can lead to bone and tooth loss. The dentist will use the procedure of scaling and root planing to scale the root surface. This will reach areas that a normal 6-month teeth cleaning doesn’t get to stop inflammation of the gums. The inflammation of the gums is one of the causes of excessive or uneven gums. You can get rid of any excessive or uneven gums by contacting our office and scheduling an appointment with our professional dentist at New Smiles Dental.
I ve been a patient of Dr. Bouroncle for the past two years, and I can t say enough good things about him, as he effectively rebuilt my smile, for which I consistently receive complements. He is the consumate professional-meticulous in his work, a perfectionist who pays attention to every single detail, and who maintains his patients informed of their treatment. His work is nothing short of stellar, and a reflection of his commitment to his profession and his patients. My family and I will now be traveling from Fredericksburg to Woodbridge to continue seeing him for years to come.
