Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that we typically recommend to address mild to moderate gum disease. During the scaling process, we’ll thoroughly remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, as far down as the pockets of your gums. Then, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth, removing any collections of hardened bacteria. This will allow the tissue to integrate with your teeth, protecting the vulnerable roots and stopping or slowing the spread of the disease.

Arestin Antibiotic Therapy

Unlike a pill that exposes your whole body to the antibiotic, we utilize Arestin antibiotic therapy to target the origin of the infection within the pockets of the gums. We’ll place small, antibiotic microspheres into the gum pockets that will gradually activate over the course of several days, helping your body fight off the infection. We may have you come in for a follow-up a week or two after your therapy to see the progress that has been made.

Laser Periodontal Therapy

Laser periodontal therapy is similar to the process of scaling and root planing, it just utilizes a concentrated beam of light called a soft tissue laser. It can seamlessly remove excessively damaged gum tissue, leaving only healthy tissue behind, and help combat harmful oral bacteria buildup precisely and effectively. It reduces recovery times, minimizes any bleeding that may occur, and helps tackle more advanced periodontal disease for optimal results.
