Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that we utilize to help treat and reverse mild to moderate gum disease. During the scaling portion, we will clear away all plaque and tartar buildup below and above the gum line. This will help reduce the presence of harmful oral bacteria. Then, we will smooth out the roots of your teeth to allow the gums to healthily reattach and protect them.
Arestin Antibiotic Therapy
Typically, we pair Arestin antibiotic therapy with scaling and root planing to offer the best results. This involves placing an antibiotic into the pockets of your gums that will remain active for an extended period of time to kill hard-to-reach bacteria. When paired with a deep cleaning, Arestin antibiotic therapy has been shown to effectively reduce pocket depth and restore the health of the oral tissues.
