Root surface debridement (RSD) is sometimes known as ‘deep cleaning. It involves the careful removal of deposits of plaque and calculus from the root surface.

In health, the gum surrounding the tooth will fit tightly with a small space between measuring between 1-3mm. Inactive gum disease this space becomes bigger forming a pocket where bacteria, plaque and calculus can build up. This causes the surrounding gum to become inflamed and hence lead to gum disease. If the gum disease is severe it can lead to bone loss and eventually tooth loss as there is a lack of support from the surrounding structures.

The aim of root surface debridement is to get deep into the periodontal pocket to clean the root surface and remove bacterial toxins. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia for patient comfort with hand instruments and an ultrasonic device. It can be carried out in one or more appointments depending on severity. In some cases the procedure may be followed by adjunctive therapy which involves local delivery of antimicrobials.
