Scaling and Root Planing

When periodontitis begins to affect the health of the gum tissue, the gums can retract from the teeth and leave large pockets. These deep pockets around the tooth root can be almost impossible to clean with home care and need professional care. To clear away the tartar on the roots, a procedure is used that scales away the tartar below the gum line on the tooth root. Once the tartar is removed, the root is planed to make it smooth, promoting healing of the gum tissue. Since scaling and root planing occur below the gums, anesthesia is needed to numb the area while this treatment is performed.
