Scaling & Root Planing

What is scaling and root planing?

Scaling and root planning, or a "deep cleaning," is a non-surgical periodontal therapy that removes accessible calculus (tartar), bacterial toxins, and etioligcal agents that cause inflammation to the gum tissue and surrounding bone. The goal of scaling and root planing is to eliminate disease and return the supporting structures of the teeth to a healthy state that can be maintained by home care and professional maintenance appointments at our office.
