Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing stand as a non-surgical, in-depth cleaning method designed to eliminate plaque located beneath the gum line, an area not accessible through regular brushing and flossing. This procedure becomes necessary as gum disease progresses from gingivitis to periodontitis, leading to soft tissue damage around the teeth.
During this meticulous cleaning process, a dental hygienist employs specialized tools to effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup situated below the gumline. Additionally, they focus on smoothing out areas where bacterial deposits can linger, addressing the root causes contributing to the progression of gum disease.Transforming extractions into brighter, happier smiles.

When is Scaling & Root Planing Necessary?
Scaling and root planing is necessary when gum disease advances from gingivitis to periodontitis, causing damage to the soft tissue around the teeth. This procedure becomes essential when standard oral hygiene practices prove inadequate in addressing plaque and tartar buildup below the gum line. It is a proactive measure taken by our dental professionals to halt the progression of gum disease and promote improved oral health.
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to severe consequences like tooth loss and, in some cases, even contribute to heart disease. Early detection and prompt treatment are essential if you observe symptoms such as bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, or noticeable plaque accumulation on your teeth.
