What Is Quadrant Scaling Dental Treatment?
Quadrant scaling, also known as quadrant periodontal scaling or deep cleaning, is a dental treatment that focuses on thoroughly cleaning one quadrant of the mouth at a time. It is commonly performed to treat gum disease and improve overall oral health.
During quadrant scaling, the dental professional uses specialized instruments to remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial deposits from the teeth and below the gum line. The procedure involves two main components:
The dental professional carefully scales the tooth surfaces, both above and below the gum line, using handheld instruments or ultrasonic scalers. This process aims to remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial buildup that contribute to gum disease.
After scaling, the dental professional performs root planing, which involves smoothing the rough surfaces of the tooth roots. This step helps to remove any remaining bacteria and promotes the reattachment of the gums to the tooth roots, facilitating gum healing and reducing the depth of gum pockets.
Quadrant scaling is typically performed under local anaesthesia to ensure patient’s comfort. The treatment is usually divided into multiple appointments, with each session focusing on one quadrant of the mouth. By addressing one quadrant at a time, thorough cleaning and effective management of gum disease can be achieved.
