Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing can be thought of as a special dental cleaning that specifically focuses on the gum line. First, an ultrasonic cleaner is used to break up and remove any plaque and bacteria buildup below the gums (scaling), and then the roots of the teeth are gently reshaped and smoothed out (root planing). This not only encourages the tissues to heal quickly, but it also prevents the future accumulation of plaque, lowering the possibility of reinfection.
