Tabanella presents a case study of a tooth fracture associated with excessive and multiple sessions of scaling and root planing
during maintenance therapy following treatment for periodontitis.
After a period of 15 days, full mouth root planing
was done, and oral hygiene instructions were given.
Supragingival and subgingival scaling and root planing
were performed using the hand and ultrasonic instrumentation.
Comment: In this study, vitamin E supplementation, when used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing
, improved chronic periodontitis.
* Although additional research is needed to strengthen the evidence and make a clinical recommendation for aPDT use, there is some evidence to support the use of aPDT as an adjunct to scaling and root planing
(SRP), but not as a monotherapy, in the treatment of chronic and aggressive periodontitis (AgP).
Moreover, research suggests that in patients with periodontitis during the second trimester, deep instrumental cleaning, known among dentists as scaling and root planing
, may substantially lower the risk of preterm delivery.
IF you suffer from periodontitis you now have a proven home-care breakthrough to help you avoid gum surgery, root planing
Furthermore, after treatment with scaling and root planing
(SRP) in generalized cases, the disease is often reduced to a few local areas in the patient's mouth.
A study evaluated the clinical and microbiological effects on chronic periodontitis patients with complete oral prophylaxis (Scaling and Root Planing
) followed by dietary supplement of CoQ10 (Oxyfresh, USA) for 4 months of time period.
Thirty patients with chronic periodontitis and moderately deep pockets were treated with scaling and root planing
and were randomly assigned to receive, in double-blind fashion, probiotic lozenges twice a day (morning and evening after toothbrushing) or placebo lozenges for 3 weeks.
* Estimated hourly earnings in a dental practice from scaling and root planing
are estimated at 6 to 9-times greater compared with oral prophylaxis.
It is indicated for treatment of exposed dentin, for use after prophylaxis or scaling and root planing
, and before and/or after tooth bleaching.
