Defend Against Periodontitis with Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling & Root Planing

Let us help you defend your teeth against periodontitis.

Scaling and root planing are the first line of defense against periodontitis. These procedures entail a careful cleaning of the crown and root surfaces under the gums to remove bacteria, toxins, and tartar (calculus) that build up in the pocket. In order to maximize patient comfort, a local anesthetic is used. Laughing gas can also be administered to help alleviate apprehension.
