Scaling & Root Planing


Call it by any of its names: scaling and root planing, conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy, deep cleaning or dental prophylaxis, the objective is the same: to remove and eliminate the causes for gum inflammation, plaque, hardened calculus and the fear of tooth loss if not treated. Furthermore – and maybe more importantly – removing these toxins could avoid triggering many other problems in the body such as: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, lower birth weight, premature babies, and oral cancer.
