Scaling & Root Planing Toluca Lake, CA

Safeguard your smile from gum disease with scaling & root planing in Toluca Lake.

Toluca Dental Care offers several non-surgical deep cleaning procedures, including scaling and root planing, to protect you and your smile from periodontal (gum) disease.

Scaling removes tartar from the surface of the tooth, while root planing smoothes the surfaces of the tooth’s roots and removes any infected tooth structure.

Both scaling and root planing are painlessly performed by either our dentist or hygienists and can help fight against gingivitis.

Unlike traditional dental cleanings that you receive at your regular check-ups, scaling, and root planing are deep cleanings used specifically to treat gingivitis.

What is a Scaling & Root Planing Deep Cleaning?

Scaling and root planing are some of the most common and effective treatments for gum disease in its early stages. This deep-cleaning treatment includes two main steps:

  • Scaling: In scaling, we remove plaque and tartar (dental calculus) from the tooth surface.
  • Root Planing: Cleaning the roots of the teeth, and smoothing them to remove bacterial toxins.


The goals of scaling and root planing are to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar, and to halt the progress of the disease.

Is a Gingivitis Deep Cleaning Painful?

While most scaling and root planing treatments can be completed comfortably without an anesthetic, our dentist offers several anesthetic options and other comfort solutions to make certain that you feel at ease during your treatment.

The scaling and root planing treatment may be split up into several appointments, in which we treat one section of the mouth at each appointment.

Will Scaling & Root Planing Therapy Improve My Gum Health?

Scaling and root planing may be combined with other types of periodontal therapy, such as antibiotic treatment. For most patients, scaling and root planing is enough to prevent periodontal disease from progressing further.
