Scaling And Root Planing
A non-surgical therapeutic procedure to remove plaque, tartar and diseased root layer off teeth surfaces.  During the process hand instruments and / or an ultrasonic instrument is used.  This is usually done under a local anesthetic.  This procedure removes bacteria that are destructive and dangerous to the attachment of teeth and reduces gum swelling and bleeding.  As a result, this procedure along with better home care will prevent further bone loss and ultimately tooth loss.  More studies are recently linking periodontal disease with heart and kidney disease, diabetes and other systemic conditions.
