Scaling and Root Planing
Treat gum disease below the gumline
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects over 47 percent of adults over the age of 30, with that number jumping to over 70 percent in adults over the age of 65. While regular brushing and flossing work to remove the bacteria and plaque responsible for gum disease, it isn’t always enough. At New Leaf Rohnert Park, we understand how damaging gum disease can be to your overall oral and general health and offer deep cleanings that include scaling and root planing in order to remove the plaque and bacterial buildup under the gumline that is responsible for severe gum disease and even tooth loss.

What is scaling and root planing?
How is scaling and root planing performed?
Scaling and root planing is typically performed by a dental hygienist or dentist using specialized instruments. The procedure consists of two main steps:
- Scaling: Using a dental scaler or ultrasonic cleaner, the dental professional will remove plaque and tartar deposits from the tooth surfaces and below the gumline.
- Root planing: The dental professional will smooth the rough spots on the root surfaces of the teeth, making it more difficult for bacteria to accumulate and allowing the gums to reattach to the teeth more effectively.
Local anesthesia may be used to numb the area being treated to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
