When oral health is neglected, or a patient has a family history of gum disease, scaling and root planing may be required as part of gum disease treatment or prevention. When plaque bacteria begin to build up under the gumline, gum disease can develop. This can result in tooth decay and tooth loss. Scaling involves your dentist removing hardened plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. Your dentist will then smooth out the tooth roots so your gums can reattach themselves to the teeth. This is known as planing. Scaling and root planing may require a local anesthetic and more than one appointment depending on the severity. This procedure can prevent periodontal disease from progressing.
