Dental scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is a dental procedure that aims to thoroughly clean the surfaces of a tooth’s root as well as the surrounding gums. This procedure is typically recommended to address gum issues such as gingivitis (gum inflammation) or periodontitis (more advanced infection of the tooth-supporting tissues).
During the first step, your tooth is prepared to make room for the crown. Next, the prepared tooth is scanned, and the creation of the crown begins. The process of creating the crown begins with your doctor taking an impression of your teeth. This impression is then sent to a laboratory where an expert technician builds a model of your mouth. The lab then works closely with your doctor to design your crown, using the model as a reference. Once the crown is ready, your doctor will make final adjustments and cement it directly in the clinic. Once completed, your tooth is now restored to optimal shape and function.
