Scaling & Root Planing

As a non-surgical form of gum disease treatment, scaling and root planing is a two-part process that is highly effective. Scaling involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline, including those areas missed with brushing and flossing. Root planing involves smoothing the roots of the teeth to prevent bacteria from returning and to encourage the healing of gum tissues.

Laser Periodontal Treatment

When more advanced gum disease is present, our team can use our in-house dental laser to eradicate bacteria and infected tissue. The concentrated laser promotes faster regeneration of healthy gum tissue while also reducing the potential for bleeding and swelling. With less recovery time and a more targeted, accurate approach, we can ensure a more comfortable solution that leads to a disease-free smile.

Antibiotic Treatment

In combination with other forms of gum disease treatment, our team can fully eradicate bacteria in the smallest crevices using antibiotics. Applied to your gum pockets, the medicine will slowly dispense over time, reaching areas that dental lasers and traditional instruments cannot. By incorporating the use of antibiotics into your treatment plan, we make it possible to better manage your gum disease.
