Scaling and Root Planing (SRP)

Your Solution for Gum Health – Scaling and Root Planing

Are you experiencing symptoms like swollen gums, bad breath, or bleeding while brushing? These could be warning signs of gum disease. At Portal Dental Care, we offer an effective solution: Scaling and Root Planing (SRP).

What is Scaling and Root Planing?

Often abbreviated as SRP, this is a deep-cleaning, non-surgical procedure that targets the root cause of gum disease. The treatment involves two primary steps: scaling, where plaque and tartar are meticulously removed from below the gumline, and root planing, where the tooth roots are smoothed to encourage reattachment of the gums.

The Benefits of SRP

This procedure goes beyond a standard cleaning to treat advanced gum disease, offering the following benefits:

  • Deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar
  • Promotion of gum reattachment
  • Improvement in bad breath caused by bacterial buildup

The SRP Process at Portal Dental Care

At Portal Dental Care, your comfort is our priority. The SRP procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Our dental team employs state-of-the-art tools to ensure a thorough cleaning and optimal results.
