Scaling & Root Planning

What is scaling and root planing?

Scaling and root planing are two deep cleaning procedures that can be effective in the fight against gingivitis and other early stages of gum disease (periodontal disease). The main goal of scaling and root planing is to remove bacteria and infected gum tissue, helping to encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue and restore the health of your smile. When periodontal disease is caught in the early stages, calling gingivitis, scaling and root planing can effectively maintain and improve your oral health, preventing the condition from progressing further and avoiding additional damage to your smile. In some cases, the effects of periodontal disease can even be reversed.

Do I need scaling and root planing?

Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman may recommend scaling and root planing if you suffer from periodontal disease, especially if the condition is in the earlier stages. The number of visits required for scaling and root planing in Las Vegas, Nevada will depend on the number of and severity of the areas that need to be treated. Thanks to local anesthetic, scaling and root planing can be completely comfortable for the patient.

Dr. Greg Heideman is literally my hero. He gave me life, with my smile. I was at another dentist office that he was filling in at for some reason. Thank heavens for that day. I made an appoitment with him, he told me what he could do for me. No looking back. I trusted that nan, and I can never say thank you enough. His staff, his level of excellence, is my reward. Thanks Doc!!!

Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman and their staff are perhaps the most professional dentists with which I’ve come in contact in recent years. Their dental options, both cosmetic and general, were thorough and honest. I didn’t feel like I was being upsold or “convinced” to have expensive work done. Highly recommended.

My experience with Luth & Heideman has been great. This is my second visit, with my first being a consultation. The entire staff was very professional and curtious. By far the best dentist experience I have had, and would not hesitate to refer anyone here.

Today was my 2nd visit with Dr. Luth. I needed a lot of work done, but he and Ally, his assistant were so nice, patient, always asking if I was ok. When I needed to take a quick break they never hesitated to let me have a little rest. They have so much compassion at this office. Everyone here is so so nice. Plus, and most important, they were very very thorough. I definitely give it 5 out 5 stars!!!!!
