Root Planning

Root planning is another for scaling. It is a non-surgical procedure use to treat periodontal disease, which is an infection of the gums and bone that support the teeth. This procedure involves removing plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth and root surfaces below the gum line, and smoothing out any rough areas on the roots of the teeth. 

During root planning, a dental professional uses specialized instruments, such as ultrasonic scalers or hand scalers, to carefully remove the buildup of bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the teeth and gums. This can help to reduce inflammation and swelling of the gums, and improve the health of the surrounding bone and tissues.

Root planning is often done in conjunction with other treatments for periodontal disease, such as antibiotics or surgery, and may be repeated as needed to maintain good oral health. It is an important part of overall dental care and can help to prevent more serious problems, such as tooth loss or bone damage, in the future.
