Root Planing in Valencia
Serving the Entire Santa Clarita Valley since 2000
Cleaning your gums is an important part of keeping your mouth healthy. Plaque can build up there just as much as it can on your teeth, so it is important to take preventative measures there, too. Root planing is a procedure that cleans out the pockets in your gums to treat any plaque buildup and prevent further gum problems. At Go Dental, we’ve been helping our patients with effective root planing and gum health procedures for nearly two decades. Find out why our patients trust us with their oral health.

How Root Planing Strengthens Your Gums
Root planing is used to treat moderate-to-advanced gum disease. As plaque builds up on teeth, it can cause the gums to feel inflamed, deepening the gum pockets that hold teeth and loosen the connections to the bone inside. If left untreated, this can become a much more serious problem.
The deeper the gum pockets, the easier it is for:
- Plaque deposits to become trapped
- Plaque to turn into tartar
- Gum problems to become worse
Root planing involves inserting a pointed dental tool called a scaler into the pockets to clean plaque buildup.
Patient-Focused Dental Services
Backed by decades of experience, our dentists know how to make sure you get the best care and feel comfortable in our office. Depending on the degree of difficulty, root planing sometimes takes several appointments and the administration of local anesthesia to prevent discomfort.
Practicing good preventative dentistry techniques can assist in preventing gum problems. By taking care of your root planing needs early on, you can avoid more serious and invasive procedures later on. Call Go Dental today and schedule your next visit.
