What is a nonsurgical periodontal treatment?
Scaling and root planning will help remove bacterial plaque and tartar on the root surfaces of your teeth. Several patients do not need any additional active treatment after scaling and root planning according to most periodontists. One should exercise maintenance care to prevent progression. It is much deeper than standard teeth cleaning. Also, there is prophylaxis, a routine dental cleaning.
