It is a part of treatment in case of the periodontium diseases. It may be carried out when the patient is sufficiently capable of removing the plaque alone, by skillful brushing of the teeth, in line with the recommendations of the periodontologist or the dental hygienist.
This procedure is being carried out with local anesthesia. Its nature is simple: the teeth are cleaned with the use of ultrasonic scaler and the currets are being cleansed from the tartar and so called granulation, which emerged due to the inflammation. The aim of the treatment is to get rid of the inflammation, reduce the gum oedema, and thus, expose - to a slight degree - the tooth roots.
