Scaling And Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a minimally invasive treatment for treating gum disease without surgery. It involves carefully removing plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth, both above and below the gum line. The root surfaces are then smoothed to eliminate rough areas where bacteria can accumulate. This deep cleaning helps reduce inflammation, control infection, and promote the healing of gum tissues.
