Scaling and Root Planing

Periodontal Treatment

Removing bacteria above, below and within the gum line.
A very thorough version of a dental cleaning, this is an initial treatment designed to remove all biofilm (soft plaque) and calculus (tartar) from above, and within the deep pockets of the gum line. Scaling and root planing is often the first step toward achieving periodontal health and stability. With proper care, it can halt the progression of periodontal disease.

Depending on a patient's condition, this procedure can be completed in one or more appointments, typically under local anesthetic, for comfort. We may also incorporate chemotherapeutic agents and anti-microbial rinses (Chlorhexidine) into your treatment.
