What is root planing?
Root planing is a deep scaling to clean parts of teeth below the gum line which cannot be reached with a toothbrush.
Gums can become diseased so that they look red and puffy. They will probably bleed when you brush. Painless gum pockets start to form around the teeth and bone supporting the teeth is slowly lost.
Root planning cleans out these pockets and removes plaque and hard tartar from the tooth roots. It takes longer than a scale and polish and is often done under a local anaesthetic.
