Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are two stages of the deep cleaning process. You can think of it as a particular kind of dental cleaning that focuses on a specific area – namely the gum line and the roots of the teeth. After harmful plaque and bacteria are gently scraped away, we will smooth out the roots of the teeth. Not only does this help the gums heal faster, but it lowers the chances of new bacteria accumulating on the teeth.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment
The highly focused energy of a dental laser offers us new ways to treat gum disease. We can quickly sterilize the area beneath the gum line and remove small amounts of infected tissue while leaving the healthy parts of the gums intact. Laser periodontal therapy is so gentle and causes so little bleeding or discomfort that you may not even need to have your mouth numbed beforehand.
