Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing are also referred to as a deep cleaning, which is necessary when gingivitis is evident. This two-part process requires removing harmful bacteria from the teeth and below the gum line (scaling) before smoothing the roots to encourage proper reattachment of the gums to your teeth (root planing). Depending on the severity of your case, this process may occur over multiple appointments, or you may need to come in more regularly for deep cleaning treatment.

Laser Periodontal Therapy

To more accurately target pockets of bacteria that are hard to reach, we can use our Gemini dual-wavelength diode laser. This allows us to eliminate harmful plaque and tartar that are negatively affecting your oral health, more specifically, your gum tissue. The precision of the laser also serves to benefit your smile because it leaves healthy tissue alone, focusing solely on the problem areas.
