Scaling & Root Planing

If we notice some moderate or severe symptoms of gum disease, we’ll likely suggest scaling and root planing to help control the tartar and bacteria accumulation in your mouth. During the first step, we’ll clear away all the harmful substances from above and below the gumline. Next, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth to allow your gums to healthily reattach to them to keep further damage from occurring.

Antibiotic Therapy

Typically, we’ll recommend antibiotic therapy in addition to a deep cleaning to help your immune system tackle a gum infection. We’ll place topical antibiotics in the pockets of your gum tissue. This is where harmful oral bacteria typically accumulates, causing inflammation, irritation, and even dental sensitivity. The antibiotics will slowly dissolve over the next week and fight off the concentrated bacteria in these areas, helping to reverse symptoms.
