Scaling & Root Planing

Accumulated plaque and tartar can wreak havoc on your smile, causing a breakdown of teeth, gums, and bone. This is why we can implement scaling and root planing to treat advanced gum disease. Also referred to as “deep cleaning,” this two-part process involves removing bacteria from the teeth and beneath the gumline (scaling). Then, we will smooth the roots (root planing) to encourage reattachment of the gums and teeth as well as minimize potential reinfection in the future.
