Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing

Effectively stop and reverse the harmful effects of periodontal disease with scaling and root planing.

If you have periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, it’s essential that you treat it as soon as possible. Research continues to link periodontal disease to not only oral health problems and tooth loss but overall health problems as well, including diabetes, heart disease, low birth weight, and more. Luckily, you can stop periodontal disease right in its tracks and reverse the damage it has caused to both your overall wellbeing with scaling and root planing.

Scaling and root planning is a non-surgical treatment that consists of two steps. First, the plaque and tartar that causes periodontal disease is carefully removed from the surfaces of your teeth both above and below your gum line. Then, your teeth’s root surfaces are smoothed so that your gum tissues can heal and reattach to your teeth. Following scaling and root planing, it’s essential to maintain regular dental visits to keep the periodontal disease from returning.
