Scaling & Root Planings

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss affecting the health of the mouth. Unfortunately, periodontal disease is a silent disease that often does not show signs or symptoms, especially in its early stages.

Scaling and Root Planing is provided to help maintain periodontal disease. Plaque and tarter are removed 4-7 mm below the gum line (Scaling), and the root surfaces are smoothed (Root Planing).

If you need Scaling and Root Planing, our office will discuss treatment options after your dental evaluation. Our dental team cares about restoring the health of your teeth and gums.
