Advanced Gum Treatments

Deep cleanings (Root Planing and Scaling) involve instrumentation of the crown and root surfaces of the teeth to remove plaque and tartar from these surfaces. It is indicated for patients with gum disease and is therapeutic in nature. Deep cleanings are designed for the removal of cementum and dentin that is rough, and/or permeated by tartar or contaminated with toxins or microorganisms. Some gum tissue removal occurs. This procedure may be used as a main treatment in some stages of gum disease and/or as a part of pre-surgical procedure in others.
