Root planing involves detailed scaling of the root surface to decrease inflammation of the gum tissue so that way any excessive or uneven gums is out of sight. The procedure helps prevent gum disease as well which can lead to bone and tooth loss. The dentist will use the procedure of scaling and root planing to scale the root surface. This will reach areas that a normal 6-month teeth cleaning doesn’t get to stop inflammation of the gums. The inflammation of the gums is one of the causes of excessive or uneven gums. You can get rid of any excessive or uneven gums by contacting our office and scheduling an appointment with our professional dentist at New Smiles Dental.
