The office of Summit Center for Dentistry offers non-surgical deep cleaning treatments, including scaling and root planing, to ensure that each of our patients remains healthy and safe. Scaling is the process of removing dental tartar from the tooth’s surface, while root planing is the process of having the root surfaces smoothed and removing infected tooth structure. Our dentist’s scaling and root planing in West Fargo, North Dakota, both help in the fight against gingivitis, a harmful gum disease.
