Scaling & Root Planing

Once gum disease is detected, the most effective way to treat it is with a dental deep cleaning. Also referred to as scaling and root planing, this two-part process helps to eliminate bacteria and encourage gum reattachment. Scaling involves removing built-up plaque and tartar from teeth and the gumline, while root planing requires smoothing out the tooth root to make it harder for bacteria to form in the future.
