Scaling & Root Planing

What Happens in a Dental Scaling and Root Planing Appointment?

Relaxed woman in dental chairWhen a patient’s case of periodontal (gum) disease will not respond to diligent brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings any longer, it’s time to undergo a more involved treatment.

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning that allows us to clean away plaque and tartar from underneath the gum line, and to smooth the rough root surfaces so your gums will more successfully reattach to your teeth. Our goal for scaling and root planing is to eliminate disease-causing bacteria and help your smile recover here in Ann Arbor, MI! Contact our office today if you’d like to schedule a consultation.
