Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that we typically recommend for patients who are showing the signs of mild to moderate gum disease. First, our team will clear all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, as far down as the pockets of the gums. We’ll then remove any hardened tartar and bacteria from the roots of the teeth, allowing the gum tissue to healthily reattach and protect this vulnerable structure.
In addition to scaling and root planing, we also offer PerioProtect, which is a customized medication that specifically targets the gums. Using patented non-invasive Perio Trays® that seal medication deep into the pockets of the gums, this FDA-cleared treatment attempts to treat the root of gum disease. By delivering medication to the areas of the mouth where your toothbrush and dental floss can’t reach, PerioProtect can improve your oral and overall wellbeing by helping tackle gum disease.
