Scaling & Root Planing
When gum disease reaches past the point of gingivitis (the reversible stage of gum disease), a detailed cleaning and improved at-home care can usually reverse most of the symptoms. However, if plaque and bacteria has reached further underneath the gums, a deep cleaning is necessary in order to effectively treat the condition.
Following your gum therapy, it’s crucial that your gum tissue heals quickly. This way, we can finish cleaning the rest of your gum tissue as soon as possible. Gums are sensitive and need time to heal, which is why retreatments are required every three to four months. With antibiotic therapy, which is placed in the deep pockets that have formed in between your teeth as a result of the infection, we can promote faster healing and reduce the risk of your gums becoming infected again later.
