Scaling & Root Planing

Once gum disease has passed the gingivitis stage, improved oral care is not going to be enough to address your gum problems. This is because plaque and decay have reached beneath the gum tissue and begun attacking the roots of teeth, not just the visible gum portion covering them. Scaling works to remove plaque from this region, while root planing smooths out the tooth roots, making it easier for them to reattach to the receding gums. Treatment must be done once every three to four months to ensure that the gums are healing.
