Let us help you return to top-notch gum health! Ask about scaling and root planing today.
Scaling involves the removal of built up plaque and tartar. During root planing, the roots of the teeth will be gently cleaned and any rough spots will be removed.
Scaling and root planing actually helps gums heal. The gums will have an easier time reattaching themselves to a smooth surface than a rough one. It also helps keep calculus and tartar from attacking the root surface again. Once complete, Dr. Cascante will recommend a follow-up plan to help you maintain this healthy environment.
A simple procedure like scaling and root planing can reduce the effects of periodontal disease and return gum tissue back to health. To find out if you’re a candidate for scaling and root planing, schedule a consultation today.
