Scaling & Root Planing
When caught early enough, gum disease can usually be stopped using a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. Scaling involves removing harmful bacteria and tartar buildup from below the gum line that is often the source of gum disease, and root planing is used to smooth the rough surfaces of the teeth’s roots. This helps prevent the infection from coming back and also jumpstarts the healing process so the gums firmly reattach to the teeth.
