State of The Art Dental Services

Scaling and root planing, often referred to as SRP, is a fundamental dental procedure crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. At Mayfield Ranch Dental, we provide top-notch SRP services to residents of Round Rock, Texas. This comprehensive treatment is especially vital for patients dealing with gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.

What is Scaling and Root Planing?

Scaling and root planing involves two basic steps:

  • Scaling: The removal of tartar (hardened plaque) and bacteria from the tooth’s surface and beneath the gumline.
  • Root Planing: Smoothing out the tooth’s roots to eliminate rough spots where bacteria can accumulate.

Why is Scaling and Root Planing Necessary?

  • Gum Disease Treatment: SRP is an effective nonsurgical treatment for gum disease, preventing its progression.
  • Tartar Removal: It eliminates stubborn tartar buildup, which regular brushing and flossing cannot remove.
  • Improved Oral Health: SRP promotes healthier gums, reduces inflammation and can prevent tooth loss.
  • Painless Procedure: Patients are ensured comfort throughout the process through local anesthesia.

The SRP Process

  1. Initial Assessment: Dr. Jai Kolliboyana or Dr. Juhi Hirpara will assess your oral health and determine the extent of gum disease.
  2. Scaling: The removal of tartar and plaque from tooth surfaces using specialized tools.
  3. Root Planing: Smoothing the tooth roots to prevent bacteria from adhering.
  4. Follow-Up Care: Patients are educated on maintaining proper oral hygiene to prevent future issues.
