Scaling &
Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that typically takes place over the course of two appointments. First, our team will thoroughly remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, as far down as the pockets of your gums. Then, we’ll smooth out the roots of the teeth, removing any hardened deposits of plaque. This will allow your gums to healthily reattach to your teeth to protect this vulnerable structure and prevent worsening gum disease symptoms.
