Scaling and root planing is a deep dental cleaning below the gum line most often used to treat or prevent gum disease.
Usually, a good cleaning and polishing at our dentists and a good oral care routine at home is enough to ward off disease and other dental conditions. Sometimes, though, we may recommend a deeper clean with scaling and root planing.
Quick, easy, and professional. This was my first time at this office, but everyone treated me like I’d been there before. From the time I started filling out the paperwork to the moment I walked out with a filled tooth was 68 minutes. And that included the pet where they x-rayed me and determined I needed a filling.
