Scaling & Root Planing

Often considered the gold-standard of gum disease treatment, scaling and root planing are done in tandem when your gums have become infected. Scaling is the process of removing plaque from areas of teeth that could not be reached with at-home care or a professional cleaning, such as beneath the gum line. Root planing is the process of smoothing out the tooth roots so they can better reattach to teeth. This also helps reduces the risk of future infections. Keep in mind that scaling and root planing takes multiple appointments to complete, roughly every three to four months.
