How to Heal After Scaling and Root Planing Treatment

Posted .

Scaling and root planing in Denver, Colorado, is a beneficial treatment that can help you improve your oral health after it has been affected by gum disease. However, the treatment does require a recovery period, and our skilled dental team is happy to give you the tips you need to fully recover and have the best experience possible. We recommend doing the following things:

-Use the pain medication or mouth rinse that your dentist prescribes to you. This is recommended because the medication and rinse will help you prevent infection, control pain, and heal.

-Schedule a second appointment with your dentist to make sure everything is on the right track. This is beneficial because if something is wrong, your dentist can provide treatment right away.

-Practice good oral hygiene at home. You should brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash. You should also have a balanced diet, visit your dentist regularly, and avoid using tobacco products.
