Scaling and Root Planing

We remove the plaque through a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove the bacteria that contribute to the disease. This will be done in 2 visits to the office. Your hygienist will make sure you are numb for the procedure. Once both visits have been completed you will come back every 3 or 4 month’s for a special cleaning called a perio maintenance cleaning.
