Scaling & Root Planing

Once the plaque and tartar contributing to your gum disease have reached beneath your gumline, regular brushing and flossing won’t be enough to get rid of them. Instead, a process called scaling can be used to break down and remove harmful substances from behind the gums. Afterward, the tooth’s roots are smoothed out to make it easier for the gums to reattach themselves while also providing bacteria with fewer places that they can gather.
