Scaling & Root Planing

Since routine oral care or professional cleanings will not be enough to treat your gum infection, scaling and root planing is necessary. Scaling is the process in which we remove plaque from above and beneath the gum line, ensuring that the gums have a chance to heal. Root planing involves smoothing out the roots of teeth so the gums can more effectively reattach to your teeth, reducing gum recession and sensitivity.

Arestin Antibiotic Therapy

After your initial periodontal therapy is complete, we’ll apply Arestin antibiotic therapy to the persistent pockets that have formed in between teeth as a result of your gum disease. This liquid-based antibiotic is designed to promote healing of your gum tissue in between your routine visits. Keep in mind that periodontal therapy requires regular retreatment every three to four months, which also gives us a chance to confirm that the antibiotic is working properly.
