Scaling/Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is the most common and conservative form of treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. It is the removal of calculus (commonly called tartar) and plaque that attaches to the tooth surfaces. The process especially targets the area below the gum line, along the root.

With our fully trained hygienists and special dental instruments, bacteria and stains are removed from the tooth surface both above and below the gum line that cannot be removed with brushing and flossing.
