Scaling & Root Planing
You can think of scaling and root planing as a regular dental cleaning that focuses on the parts of the teeth at and below the gumline. It’s designed to clear away the bacterial deposits of plaque and tartar that are the source of gum disease. First, we remove these deposits from your teeth and gums, and then we smooth out the rough surfaces of your teeth’s roots. This step lowers your risk of reinfection, as bacteria are less likely to gather on smooth surfaces.
