Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease is degenerative and if untreated will lead to tissue deterioration. Just the thought of this can cause fear and avoidance of dental care. The reality is that treatment is often non-surgical and simple.
Scaling and root planning is performed with simple instruments that remove the plaque and tartar attached to the tooth surfaces. Most often is does not require anesthesia. This procedure may be completed over a series of visits.
