Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleanings)

When it comes to treating periodontal disease, no treatment is more popular or effective than scaling and root planing.  This procedure helps to remove all the stuck on calculus and plaque.  In the end, this means less bacteria around your teeth and gums.

When your gums and teeth are healthy, there is less puffiness, foul smell and pain.  You can have healthy confident teeth that are stable and in good shape.

Scaling and Root Planing can take several visits or just one depending on the how severe the periodontitis is.  In the end, our goal for our patients is to get to a stable position where periodontal distruction is stopped and oral health is maintained.  If you have more questions about periodontal disease, we are happy to answer them!
