Scaling & Root Planing
When advanced gum disease develops, it make it impossible to clean with at-home care alone. Instead, our dental office performs scaling and root planing, both of which work to stop the infection from spreading and get your gum tissue back to a more manageable condition. Scaling is done to break down plaque and tartar from above and beneath the gum line. Root planing is designed to smooth out the tooth roots, which helps the gums reattach to the roots and reduce the risk of future infection.
