Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing are both parts of a deep cleaning process that typically takes place over the course of one or two appointments. During the first, Dr. Mooney will thoroughly clear away all plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile, as far down as the pockets of your gums. Then, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth, which will allow your healthy gum tissue to reattach and protect the vulnerable area. By minimizing the presence of harmful oral bacteria and protecting your teeth, we hope to reverse the effects of gum disease, depending on what stage it’s in, and restore your oral health.
