Scaling & Root Planing

When gum disease progresses and symptoms cannot be reversed with at-home oral hygiene and more frequent professional cleanings, scaling and root planing is the next step. Also known as deep cleaning, this process requires the removal of plaque and tartar from the gumline and around teeth (scaling) before smoothing the tooth roots to minimize reinfection in the future (root planing). As your gums heal, they will reattach to teeth to create a healthier oral environment.

Periodontal Maintenance

Instead of seeing a dentist every six months for regular checkups and teeth cleanings, periodontal patients can expect to visit our dentist’s office every three to four months. This is part of periodontal maintenance, and it requires frequent professional cleanings to ensure that the roots of the teeth remain plaque and tartar-free. If at any point we discover an area of concern, these regular visits make it easier for us to administer treatment sooner.
