Scaling and Root Planing

Living with infected, inflamed gums? For patients with gum disease, a healthy smile is harder to achieve — but it's not an impossible task.

At his Los Algodones, Mexico, practice, Dr. Jose Valenzuela, Jr., uses scaling and root planing to improve patients' quality of life.

Benefits include reduced pain, better health, and improved confidence. To begin, contact Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center near Mexicali.

Gum Disease Requires Dedicated Treatment and Fast Action

While gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, can be reversed with regular cleanings and a good oral hygiene routine at home, periodontal disease cannot. It is a more advanced form of the condition that must be treated with a procedure like scaling and root planing.

Without personalized care from our Los Algodones dental office, your gum disease may result in lost teeth that require treatments like dentures or dental implants. Dr. Valenzuela is here to prevent the need for these kinds of procedures, starting with a virtual consultation.

How Our Mexico Team Conducts Deep Cleanings

When plaque and tartar adhere to your gum line, they can lead to periodontal disease, a condition marked by changes in your gums and bone. Our dentist treats the condition with an effective deep cleaning. The process includes several steps:

Virtual Consultation

Before you visit our Los Algodones office for any kind of dental care, we can discuss your options with an in-person or virtual consultation. If you're a good candidate, we will schedule your visit.


Your peace of mind always comes first. We'll ensure that your treatment is discomfort-free by applying an anesthetic. Sedation dentistry is also available.


Once you're at ease, Dr. Valenzuela will remove tartar from your teeth above the gum line. He will also remove plaque from the periodontal pockets using a diode laser.

Root Planing

He will then gently push aside your gum tissue to clean plaque and tartar from your tooth roots with an ultrasonic scaler.


Dr. Valenzuela will send you home to heal, which can take about two weeks. He may give you an antibiotic prescription. During this time, your gums will adhere more tightly to your teeth.


Scaling and root planing is often completed in two appointments, one for each side of your mouth. Our team will work with your schedule to make your visits as seamless as possible.
