Scaling & Root Planing
Removing plaque and tartar that has accumulated along the gumline is the first step to treating gum disease. Knowing as scaling, it is performed before root planing, a process in which our team smooths the tooth roots to encourage proper healing and reattachment between your gums and teeth. Completed during the earlier stages of gum disease, it can help to minimize the potential risk of bone and tooth loss.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
Bacteria can often burrow into the smallest crevices of the mouth, making it hard for even some of the most sophisticated dental instruments to reach. With laser periodontal therapy, though, we can target pockets of bad bacteria and eliminate them without touching healthy tissue. This not only improves the health of your gums but also allows for a more thorough and precise method of treatment that is proven to reduce recovery time compared to older methods.
