Scaling & Root Planing
When gum disease causes inflammation of the soft oral tissues, we can recommend scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning. This two-part process involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline (scaling) before smoothing out the tooth roots (root planing) to encourage reattachment of the gums to the teeth as well as a reduced risk of reinfection. Depending on the severity of your case, this process may need to be completed in more than one visit.
When performing scaling and root planing, it is often hard to reach certain areas where bacteria can live. As a result, we use antibiotic therapy to help treat gum pockets that cannot be treated with specialized dental instruments. Once applied to the tissues, the antibiotic will disperse over several weeks, eliminating bacteria and allowing for a healthier smile.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
Using a soft tissue laser allows our team to target diseased tissues and leave healthy gums untouched. With the help of this advanced dental device, we can easily treat gum disease without the concern of excessive bleeding and swelling, and because of the concentrated beam of light that is emitted from the laser, the likelihood of infection is nearly non-existent.
