Understanding Scaling and Root Planing

Professional dental cleanings are essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. If you do not receive a cleaning from your dentist at least once a year, then you may be at risk for advanced gum disease, or periodontitis. This condition may be treated with an advanced cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. Watch this video to learn more about this type of dental cleaning.

As seen in the video, scaling and root planing is often done in stages and with advanced dental tools. These tools are used to remove the hard calculus buildup from the teeth roots and surfaces. This procedure may be done under sedation to ensure you are comfortable and the process can be done quickly.
