Deep Scaling and Root Cleaning

The first stage of periodontal treatment is usually a thorough deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing or periodontal cleaning.

This non-surgical procedure removes plaque and tartar deposits beneath the gum line and smooths the root surfaces allowing the gum tissues to heal and reattach to the teeth.

The objective of periodontal cleaning is to remove dental plaque and tartar, both sources of bacteria, which cause inflammation of the gum and tissue and bone loss. This treatment will commonly require several visits to complete.

Typically a follow up visit is scheduled 6 weeks after this phase of treatment to evaluate the improvements in the health of the gums.
