Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing

Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing


The objective of scaling & root planing is to remove etiologic agents which cause inflammation to the gingival (gum) tissue and surrounding bone.  Common etiologic agents removed by this conventional periodontal therapy include dental plaque and tartar (calculus).

Scaling and root planing can be used both as a preventative measure and as a stand-alone treatment.


If you have any concerns or questions about scaling and root planing treatment, please ask Dr. Guier.
