Scaling and Root Planing at Zielinski Family Dentistry
Scaling and root planing helps to treat gum disease by removing plaque and bacteria from the tooth and root, and then smoothing the root. The smoothing process makes it difficult for anything to clinging to the root, allowing gums to heal and reattach. Those suffering from gum disease should have regular cleanings and maintenance to ensure their gums are healthy and clean. Contact Zielinski Family Dentistry for an appointment in Plains, PA, today.
