Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that typically takes place over the course of one or two appointments. We’ll begin with a deep cleaning of your teeth, removing all plaque and tartar accumulation in the pockets of your gums. Then, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth, removing any hardened deposits of bacteria. This will allow the gum tissue to reconnect with your teeth and protect your vulnerable roots.
