Non-Surgical Gum Treatment with Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical gum treatment aimed at staunching the progression of gum disease. It is most effective in the early stages of periodontal disease. Scaling and root planing involves specialized hand instruments and ultrasonic scalers that allow us to effectively remove harmful plaque and tartar residing below the gum line. The treatment helps reduce the depth of periodontal pockets by encouraging the gum tissue to reattach to the tooth surface.
