Scaling & Root Planning

Scaling and root planing are sometimes referred to collectively as a “deep cleaning.” The scaling process is where we scrape away the plaque that has accumulated on your teeth and gums; it targets the pockets that form when the gums pull away from the tooth. Root planing is meant to help prevent a reinfection by smoothing out the surface of the teeth, making a surface that is much harder for bacteria to attach themselves to.
