Scaling and Root Planing

Meadow Bridge Dental in Beavercreek, OH offers non-surgical scaling and root planing (two deep cleaning procedures) to ensure that you and your family remain healthy and safe from periodontal (gum) disease. When left untreated, periodontal disease has been linked to significant health risks, including stroke and heart disease, which makes early treatment extremely important.

Scaling and root planing are performed to treat and halt the progression of gingivitis, the earliest stage of periodontal disease.  Scaling involves removing calculus (tartar) from the surfaces of the teeth, while root planing is the process of smoothing the surfaces of the roots to remove any infected tooth structure. We invite you to call our office today to learn more about family dentistry and our efforts to fight periodontal disease. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health!
