Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)

scaling and root planing

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning below the gumline used to treat gum disease. Gum disease is caused by a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. If the pockets between your gums and teeth are too deep, scaling and planing may be needed.

Deep cleaning has two parts: Scaling is the removal all the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline, making sure to clean all the way down to the bottom of the pocket; while planing is to smooth out the roots and help the gums reattach to teeth. This treatment may take more than one visit to complete and may require a local anesthetic.
