Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing, also known as a deep cleaning, is a periodontal therapy treatment that takes place over the course of two steps. During the first, Dr. Johnson will clear all plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile, as deep as the pockets of your gums. Following that, he will smooth out the surface of the roots of your teeth, which will allow your gums to healthily reattach and protect this vulnerable structure from being attacked by bacteria. Our goal is to minimize and reverse the symptoms of gum disease to restore your oral health.
