Scaling & Root Planing

If we notice that you’re showing signs of gum disease, we’ll likely recommend scaling and root planing, or a “deep cleaning.” This involves removing all plaque and tartar buildup from the roots of your teeth below the gum line, and then the roots are slightly reshaped and smoothed. Together, this takes care of the source of the infection while also dramatically lowering the risk of future problems.

Antibiotic Therapy

Small, bacteria-filled pockets often form between the teeth and gums as the result of gum disease, and these can be virtually impossible to clean with scaling and root planing alone. So, we can apply a topical antibiotic to the gums that quickly dries and then slowly dissolves over the next few days. This continually bathes the gums with medicine so that it can reach the bottom of these pockets and quickly eliminate any leftover bacteria.
