Scaling & Root Planing
We typically recommend scaling and root planing for anyone who is experiencing the mild to moderate signs of gum disease, like gum recession, chronic bad breath, and bleeding gums when brushing or flossing. During this process, our team will thoroughly remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth to minimize bacteria presence. Then, we’ll clear away all hardened pockets of bacteria from the roots of the teeth, allowing the tissue to healthily reattach and continue protecting the roots from infection.
