If you have periodontitis, also known as advanced gum disease, scaling and root planing may be required to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth and treat inflamed gums.

How are Scaling and Root Planing Performed?

Scaling and root planing are non-invasive procedures for deep cleaning a patient's gums and teeth if they suffer from periodontitis.

Your provider will clean below your gumline and clean plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth for a healthy, prettier smile.

Benefits of Scaling and Root Planing

  • Reduced risk of gum disease progression - deep cleaning reduced further damage from periodontitis from occurring.
  • Improved overall oral and general health - advanced gum disease is linked to serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Scaling and root planing decrease the likelihood of developing these conditions.
  • Improved smile appearance - deep cleaning can alleviate swollen, red gums and remove plaque, tartar, and some superficial stains from teeth.
