Scaling and Root Planning

Scaling and root planning removes plaque and prevents periodontal disease. Unlike normal cleaning procedures, this therapy is unique because it focuses below the gum line.

After a scaling and root planning procedure, consistency with good oral hygiene habits is encouraged. Brushing and flossing at least twice daily and refraining from foods or activities that cause plaque buildup, particularly smoking, is recommended. Feel free to call the office if you have any questions on regarding benefits of this procedure or for more tips on how to care for yourself after treatment.
