Scaling & Root Planing

Whenever plaque is not removed properly, it draws bacteria and turns into dental calculus. As a result, pockets of bacteria can start to form between your teeth and gums leading you to develop a case of disease. To prevent this from happening, our prosthodontist and team perform scaling and root planing here at Implant Dentistry of the Southwest to safely remove stubborn calculus from your teeth.
