Scaling and root planing is a periodontal deep cleaning recommended for advanced stages of periodontal disease. The scaling is the cleaning around and below the gum line down to the bottom of the pocket. Scaling removes plaque and tartar, as well as any infection present. Root planing is the smoothing of the roots to help the gums reattach to the teeth. It will help the gum tissue to heal and the pockets to shrink.
