Scaling & Root Planing

To treat advanced gum disease, we’ll need to perform two key steps. This include scaling and root planing. During the scaling phase, we gently remove small bits of plaque and bacteria from areas above and below the gum line. Not only will this stop the progression of your infection, but reduce discomfort and swelling and give the gums time to heal. Root planing comes after and works to smooth out the roots of teeth. This makes it easier for them to reattach to the gums and lowers the risk of them becoming infected again later. In most cases, scaling and root planing require multiple appointments to complete.
