Scaling and Root Planing

panaAlamogordo Dental Group is proud to offer scaling and root planing, two non-surgical, deep cleaning procedures, to help protect you against the harmful effects of periodontal (gum) disease. Scaling involves removing dental tartar from the tooth’s surface, while root planing will require the surfaces of the tooth’s root to be smoothed and infected structure to be removed. Using these deep cleaning procedures, our dentists and dental team can help you fight off gum disease. For more information on gum disease or your treatment options, please call us soon.
