Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a two-step process, also known as a deep cleaning, that we use to tackle the early effects of gum disease. Our goal is to reverse the symptoms, although this can’t always be done, depending on how far the infection has progressed. First, we’ll clear all of the plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth as far down as the pockets of your gums. After, we’ll smooth out your roots to allow them to healthily reattach to your gums and provide them with protection.
