SCALING AND ROOT PLANING
Scaling and Root Planing (“deep cleaning”) is highly successful at treating patients with mild to moderate stages of periodontitis, or gum disease, which affects half of all American adults today.
Scaling thoroughly removes all plaque, toxins and tartar deposits from the teeth and pockets, both above and below the gum line. Root Planing smooths the rough areas on teeth root surfaces, which makes it more difficult for bacteria, plaque and tartar to adhere to the root surfaces, and easier for the gums to heal and reattach themselves to the tooth. Gum disease has far reaching negative effects throughout the body, so do not delay in treating this disease and living your healthiest, fullest life! Contact us to schedule your appointment today.
