Periodontal scaling goes deeper than a typical cleaning. The scraping is done not only at the gum line, but below it, closer to the root. This more extensive procedure to remove hardened plaque and calculus.
Root planing involves smoothing the exposed surface of the roots after the plaque has been removed. This helps the gum tissue reattach to the root and tooth so healing can begin.
So it's better if you will go for both the procedures.

The best treatment for your father will be first scaling and then root planing.
