Scaling & Root Planing

Restore Your Gum Health with Scaling & Root Planing

Combat stubborn gum disease and reclaim oral health with scaling and root planing at Eicon Dental. If you’re experiencing the effects of gum disease, our specialized dental procedure can effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup, allowing your gums to heal and regain their vitality.

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure designed to clean your teeth and gums deep, targeting areas affected by gum disease. Our skilled dentist or dental hygienist will numb the gums and tooth roots with local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Using specialized tools, we’ll meticulously remove hardened plaque buildup (tartar) from both above and below the gum line. Root planing involves smoothing rough spots on the tooth roots, preventing bacteria from harboring and promoting gum disease.

What to Expect During the Procedure:

While scaling and root planing may sound intimidating, the procedure causes minimal discomfort. Most patients report feeling only slight pressure during the process. Depending on the severity of your condition, the procedure may be completed in a single visit or divided into multiple appointments, typically focusing on one quadrant or half of the mouth per session.

Post-Procedure Care:

Following scaling and root planing, you may experience some numbness and tenderness in your gums. However, maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine of twice-daily brushing and daily flossing will help your gums heal quickly. With proper care, you can expect to see your gums regain their firm, healthy, pink appearance in no time.


Before scaling and root planing, you must disclose your complete health history to your dentist or dental hygienist. This procedure can introduce bacteria into the bloodstream so that precautions may be necessary for individuals at increased risk of infections, such as those with heart problems, liver disease, or compromised immune systems.
