Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment

Also known as periodontal scaling and root planning. This is performed on patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal (gum) disease. The hygienist uses instruments that not only clean the tartar off the teeth above the gum line, but also on the root surfaces of the teeth below the gum line. The gum tissue is normally anesthetized (numbed) for the patient's comfort.
