Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning below the gumline used to treat gum disease. This deep cleaning has two parts. Scaling is when your hygienist removes all the plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) above and below the gumline, making sure to clean all the way down to the bottom of the pocket. They will then begin root planing, smoothing out your teeth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth..
