Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing are part of a procedure known as “deep cleaning,” which is performed when gum disease has advanced to the point that regular cleaning is no longer enough. For the scaling portion, we’ll focus on breaking down and removing plaque and tartar from below and around your gum tissue. Then during root planing, we will smooth out the roots of your teeth. Smooth roots have an easier time reattaching to the gums, and they’re less vulnerable to bacteria buildup.
