Scaling & Root Planing

When gum disease reaches a point where plaque and tartar cannot be easily removed with at-home brushing and flossing, we can perform scaling and root planing. This two-step process involves removing hardened plaque and tartar from the teeth and around the gumline before smoothing out the rough areas of the tooth roots. This minimizes the chance of reinfection and prevents bacteria from easily re-adhering in the future.

Antibiotic Therapy

Bacteria can burrow into the smallest nooks and crannies, making it difficult for even dental instruments to reach. This is why we use Arestin antibiotic therapy. With a thorough application immediately following scaling and root planing, the antibiotics can reach into the tiniest areas of the gum pockets to eradicate bacteria and improve the state of your gum health.
