OK, so you may be thinking, "If I have gum disease, how do you treat it?"

The difference between scaling and root planing is simple. Scaling is the removal of the tarter and bacteria from your teeth. Root planing is the process of smoothening the root surfaces beneath the gum tissue and removing the any infected tooth structure.

Scaling and root planing is a simple non-surgical procedure that is typically performed without any anesthesia in 2- office visits with our hygiene team. While the procedure is usually painless, advanced stages of gingivitis may make it necessary to numb the area for complete comfort. Deep scaling and root planing is usually broken down into one section of the mouth per appointment. This allows for adequate healing time, and reduces the time for each appointment.
