Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a two-part process that many dentists use to curb gum disease and improve symptoms of bleeding, swelling, and gum pocket formation. The first step is to clear away any plaque and tartar build-up around the base of your teeth and below the gumline (scaling). Then, the second step (root planing) is to smooth the tooth roots so that gum tissues will reattach, and the chance of bacterial accumulation reduces.
Another solution that many dentists use to treat gum disease is antibiotic therapy. Designed to fight off the potential of an infection, the medication is placed within the gum pockets, where it will slowly release over several weeks. As a result, it eliminates bacteria and helps the tissues to repair themselves while bonding with the tooth roots.
To further treat gum disease at home, our team is pleased to offer a solution that many dentists do not – Perio Protect. This comprehensive way to treat periodontal disease uses clear trays and a specialized medication that is designed to fight off infections. You simply apply the medication to the tray and wear it for a few minutes each day. The medicine then spreads into the gum pockets to treat areas of the infected tissue that cannot be reached or cleaned with regular oral healthcare products.
