GD - Gum Disease-Scaling And Root Planning

Scaling And Root Planning

Scaling and Root planning is preformed by your Dental Hygienist. Your gums can become irritated when soft sticky debris or tarter accumulates around the tooth. Scaling and root planning is necessary to remove the tarter around the portion of the root above and below the gums to achieve a smooth surface, remove the bacteria causing the inflammation and to achieve optimal oral health and prevent gum disease.
Your gums can become irritated if tartar builds up on your teeth or if there are rough spots or irregularities on the surface of the roots of your teeth. Scaling and root planning are techniques we use to remove tartar, make the roots of your teeth smooth, and to prevent inflammation.
