Scaling & Root Planing
When gum disease appears, it’s because bacteria and plaque have reached underneath the gum tissue. This plaque cannot be removed via traditional means like improved at-home oral hygiene or professional cleanings. Instead, scaling and root planing are performed. Scaling involves removing hardened plaque and tartar from above and beneath the gum line, while root planing includes smoothing out the tooth roots so they can better reattach to the gums. We will likely need to perform multiple gum therapy treatments over the course of multiple visits in order to fully stop the progression of your advanced gum disease.
