Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure in which the
hygienist removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line. Root
surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with specially designed instruments.
It is important to remove the plaque and tartar from the pockets,
because aside from the bacterial toxins that irritate the gums, plaque
and the rough surfaces of tartar make it easier for bacteria to gain a
foothold causing bone loss that can lead to tooth loss.
