Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that typically takes place over the course of one or two appointments. First, Dr. Wheeler will clean the surface of your teeth, as far down as the pockets of your gums, getting rid of any plaque and tartar accumulation. Next, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth, allowing your gum tissue to healthily reattach and provide this vulnerable area with protection. With fewer harmful bacteria lurking in your mouth, your symptoms won’t be able to progress and may even disappear, depending on how severe the condition was to begin with.
