What Is Scaling and Root Planing?
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure that may be recommended by Dr. Susan Goldfarb. We may use anesthetic to ensure a comfortable visit. Specialized hand and ultrasonic instruments are used to clean your teeth of plaque and calculus from the root surfaces and within the periodontal pockets. Oral medicaments may be placed to encourage healing. Scaling and root planing is a fairly easy procedure that reduces pocket depths and helps stop the spread of periodontal disease in its tracks.
