Scaling & Root Planing

In most cases, gum disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria-filled tartar on the teeth below the gum line, and scaling and root planing is specifically designed to handle this. The procedure is similar to a routine dental cleaning, except it focuses solely on the roots of the teeth. After breaking up and removing the tartar, the roots of the teeth are reshaped to make it more difficult for tartar to gather near the gums in the future. This helps lower the risk of reinfection and enables the gums to heal more quickly.
