scaling and planing
Tooth Scaling

In order to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus deposits from your teeth, a tooth scaling must occur. In some cases plaque and tartar are present below the gum line and a sub-gingival tooth scaling must occur.

Root Planing

After scaling the teeth, roots may need to be planed to smooth the root surface. Soft tissue will re-attach itself to a smooth tooth surface.


Dr. Frank C. Greider may also recommend medications to help control infection, pain, or to encourage healing.
