Scaling & Root Planing

Before the infection can be addressed, we need to remove the plaque and tartar that already exists above and beneath the gum line. This is done through a process called scaling and is a common recommendation for gum disease therapy. Following this, we perform root planing, which is a process where the tooth roots are smoothed out so they can begin to reattach to the gums.

Antibiotic Therapy

As part of your ongoing treatment, our dental office performs antibiotic therapy following your initial scaling and root planing procedure. This antibiotic, also known as Arestin, slowly releases small amounts of gel-like material into the gums once applied. This reduces the risk of the infection coming back in between your routine gum therapy appointments. When you come back for your follow-up appointment, we’ll make sure the antibiotics are working as intended.

Laser Periodontal Therapy

Gum therapy doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable experience thanks to advanced laser therapy. Our dental office uses a CO2 soft tissue dental laser to effectively, yet conservatively, remove broken down tissue. Thanks to its precision, we can retain more healthy tissue compared to traditional methods and reduce the healing time necessary to recover from the procedure substantially. It even makes the process virtually painless. Many patients don’t even need local anesthesia as a result!
