Scaling and Root Planing
in Bethlehem, PA

Scaling and oral planing, often grouped with root planing, are non-surgical procedures that offer oral relief to people suffering from periodontal problems and diseases. They are deep cleaning procedures that replenish your gums and your teeth and give the care that is required for your damaged mouth.

Both procedures involve removing plaque and other forms of decay on your gums and teeth. Scaling gets the plaque removed whereas oral planing brings your teeth the shape and form they require. Both often go hand in hand since they help set your teeth and clean them up all at once. In a way, it can be called a thorough renovation of your mouth.

They are together called the golden standard of oral health since they offer deep cleaning to the extent that many other oral procedures do not. Moreover, they give protection and cleaning for periodontal diseases in a way that most other non-surgical procedures don’t. If you’re suffering from major oral problems, a scaling and oral planing appointment might be what you need.

    I very highly recommend Lasting Smiles! Everyone there is so friendly, professional and really knows their job whether it is with insurance, routine cleaning, or any kind of dental work. My appointments are always on time and that is very rare these days.

    Charissa West

    There is a reason this is one of the few top rated dentists in our area. I had to switch because of my insurance, so I read reviews for all the dentists in our area that participate with my insurance. There were only two that had a near perfect rating. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The exam and the cleaning were the most thorough I’ve ever had. The office was neat and clean with warm and comfortable decor. The two ladies at the front desk were so nice and welcoming and Linda was the friendliest and best hygienist I’ve had in my 38 years of going to various dentists around the country.

    During my recent appointment with Dr. Sulzbach I was greeting by the smiling and friendly women at the reception desk. I was seen on time for my appointment and was treated with professional care. The dental assistant was concerned with my comfort and Dr. Sulzbach explained his procedures as he repaired my tooth. Overall it was a very good experience.
