I had a full mouth perio probe done and my molars had a few (probably around 6) 4's and one 5. Everything else was 3's and 2's with 1's on my front teeth. Do you automatically scale and root plane at 4's? There was some bleeding on probing - what she called it. All my molars are crowned with 7 PFM and 1 gold - not sure if that matters. (I'm 47 and obviously not a good patient but trying to get better)
Second, we have a good dental hygiene school in southern California. Would you trust a hygiene student to do this type of work? I realize it will take a while. Just not sure about the quality.
Finally, is scaling ok for crowned teeth? will it do anything to them?
Thank you very much!
