Scaling & Root Planing

If we notice bleeding gums, gum recession, or other signs of gum disease, we’ll likely recommend scaling and root planing, or deep cleaning, to keep your symptoms from advancing. This is a two-step process that typically takes place throughout two appointments. The goal of this procedure is to minimize the number of harmful bacteria in your mouth and reverse or prevent the disease from progressing.
