Scaling & Root Planing
This deep-cleaning technique is the best starting point for eradicating the presence of infectious bacteria. There are two distinct sections to the treatment, and they will typically be spread out over a few different appointments. First, we will thoroughly eliminate plaque and tartar from beneath the gum tissue with high-tech instruments. Then, the tooth root surfaces (which are notorious for developing accumulations of bacteria over time) are carefully smoothed as well to prevent further flare-ups.
