Scaling & Root Planing

If your gum disease is caught in the initial stages, we can administer scaling and root planing treatment. Also referred to as a “deep cleaning,” it works to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar below the gum line through scaling while also smoothing and reshaping your tooth roots with root planing. This process encourages proper healing by minimizing the chances of future reinfection.

Antibiotic Therapy

Antibiotic therapy is often used alongside our non-surgical scaling and root planing treatment. Our team will apply medicated antibiotics inside each of your gum pockets to remove bacteria and reduce the risk of infection. Over time, your gums will begin to heal, inflammation will subside, and your oral health will improve.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Our team use the AMD Picasso laser  and grafting techniques for gum disease treatment. By treating your soft oral tissues with laser therapy, we can ensure greater precision and accuracy when removing infected tissue without touching healthy tissues nearby. It not only minimizes bleeding and inflammation but also reduces your risk of future infection.

Periodontal Flap Surgery

When periodontitis is causing gum pockets to form and your teeth to detach from the soft oral tissues, we will likely recommend periodontal flap surgery. Although this unique treatment cannot cure gum disease, it can minimize the pocket(s) and make it easier for our team to perform scaling and root planing. Once the cleaning is complete, the flap of tissue is closed, allowing rapidly healing to commence.
