Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are collectively known as deep cleaning, which is a process that focuses on removing harmful substances from your gums and the roots of your teeth. Scaling refers to the actual removal of plaque and tartar, while root planing refers to smoothing out the rough surfaces of the tooth roots. It’s more difficult for plaque and bacteria to attach themselves to smooth surfaces, so the procedure reduces the risk of a future infection while treating the current one.
