SCALING AND ROOT PLANING

This procedure is done prior to periodontal pocket reduction and periodontal guided tissue regeneration procedures. Deposits of calculus (tartar) form on the roots of the teeth below the margin of the gum tissue. These calcified deposits contain bacteria which produce enzymes that destroy the attachment of the gum tissue to the tooth and destroy the alveolar bone around the tooth. Root planing smooths the root surface after the calculus deposits have been removed.
