Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe. Root scaling and planing is a needed procedure when gums have either started to pull away from the teeth or if the roots of the teeth have hard mineral deposits on them.
A deep cleaning is performed between the gums and teeth down to the roots. Our Dental Hygienists are skilled in this simple procedure and if preferred, for an added level of comfort, you can be numb during this procedure
Special attention to brushing and flossing is stressed afterward because without proper dental care and follow up visits to our office, your gum disease may progress.
