Scaling and root planing in La Mesa, California, goes beyond a traditional or routine dental cleaning. The areas of your teeth above below your gum line are accessed and cleaned along with the roots of your teeth. If you have bleeding or sensitive gums, you may have an early form of gum disease. For this, our dentists will most likely recommend scaling and root planing. Please call our office at 619-460-0700 and our team will arrange your consultation at Summit Dental of La Mesa.
