Scaling and root planing, or deep cleaning, may be recommended if you are diagnosed with gum disease. Our dentist frequently recommends this treatment as the first step in managing periodontal disease and improving your oral health, and depending on your individual needs, may combine it with other treatments to help you achieve the best possible results.
