Scaling and Root Planing for Gum Disease

Bleeding or sensitivity along your gum line could be an early indication of gum disease. Dr. Lucas uses scaling and root planing as two methods of treatment to stop the progression of gum diseases and potentially reverse damage that has occurred to your teeth and gums.

Scaling and root planing cleans the affected teeth and removes tartar from their exposed roots. Proper brushing and flossing going forward can stop the disease progression and allow the gums to heal.
