Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a type of dental cleaning that is specifically designed to stop gum disease in its tracks. First, any plaque and tartar that has accumulated near the gum line are removed (scaling), and then the roots of the teeth are slightly reshaped and smoothed (root planing). This prevents future infections while also kickstarting the healing process by allowing the gums to quickly reattach to the teeth.
