Scaling & Root Planing
Those with advanced levels of gum disease, also known as periodontitis, will need to have professional care completed. This method is known as deep cleaning and includes two main steps. The first step is scaling, which involves breaking away tartar and plaque from areas above and below the gum line. Since plaque can easily develop underneath gum tissue, brushing, flossing and routine cleanings won’t be enough to treat your issue. The second phase is called root planing and works to help the gums reattach to the roots. It also reduces the risk of future gum infections.
