Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a nonsurgical type of gum disease treatment. It essentially amounts to a deep cleaning of the mouth. We get rid of plaque and bacteria both above and below the gumline.

Following scaling and root planing, your gums will have the opportunity to heal and reattach to your teeth.
