Scaling & Root Planing

Commonly referred to as deep cleaning, scaling and root planing is a two-part process. Usually completed in one visit, scaling involves removing plaque and tartar from above and beneath the gumline, while root planing requires smoothing out the tooth root. This allows your gums to reattach to teeth, heal properly, and reduce the potential for reinfection in the future.

Antibiotic Treatment

When bacteria spreads to areas of the gums that cannot be reached or treated by scaling and root planing, our team will use Arestin, which is an antibiotic treatment. We’ll apply it to your gum pockets so that it begins to dissolve over time. As it disperses inside the tissue, it will target bad bacteria, eliminating it, as well as encouraging your gums to heal and pockets to close.
