Scaling & Root Planing
If you let us know that you’ve been experiencing bleeding or sensitive gums, or if we notice signs of gum disease during your routine checkup, we’ll likely suggest scaling and root planing, also known as a deep cleaning. During this two-step process, one of our experienced team members will clear all of the plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth as far down as the pockets of your gums. Once the debris has been removed, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth to allow your gum tissue to healthily reattach and protect this vulnerable area of your mouth.
Arestin Antibiotic Therapy
In combination with scaling and root planing, we may also suggest Arestin antibiotic therapy. Instead of needing to expose your entire body to antibiotics via taking a pill, we place medication in the area that they’re meant to target—the pockets of your gums. Arestin consists of tiny antibiotic particles that gradually dissolve to eliminate bacteria over a longer period of time. This fights off the symptoms associated with gum disease while you’re at home.
