What is Scaling and Root Planing?

Scaling and root planing is a specialized cleaning procedure tailored for cases of severe periodontal disease that require more than routine care. Unlike regular cleanings, this process entails a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums to address persistent issues that could result in long-term dental problems.

When You May Need Scaling and Root Planing

When traditional treatments and self-care like regular flossing aren’t enough to manage severe periodontal disease, scaling and root planing may be needed. If you’re experiencing symptoms such as persistent bad breath, red or swollen gums, bleeding during brushing or flossing, or noticeable gum recession, it’s crucial to consult our dental experts at Reagin Family Dentistry.

Our team will conduct a comprehensive examination to assess the extent of your gum disease and recommend scaling and root planing if necessary. Early intervention can halt the progression of gum disease, preserving your oral health and avoiding more extensive treatments in the future.
