Scaling & Root Planing (SRPs):
Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning below the gumline used to treat gum disease. This deep cleaning has two parts.
Scaling is when your dental professional removes all the plaque and calculus (hardened plaque) above and below the gum line, cleaning the bottom of the pocket. Then your dental professional will begin root planing, smoothing out your teeth’s roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth.
