Scaling & Root Planing

For moderate levels of gum disease, scaling and root planing is the gold standard treatment. We use special tools to clean above and below the gum line, removing pockets of bacteria and smoothing out the tooth’s root to lower the risk of reinfection. This option is wonderfully effective for many patients.

Pocket Irrigation

Gum disease is a chronic inflammatory condition that results in pockets of bacteria developing between the teeth and gums. By removing diseased tissue and targeting the infected area directly with an antimicrobial agent, your dentist can kill the bacteria at the source for more effective gum disease treatment.
