Scaling and Root Planning
One of the most pervasive and painful oral health complications that any patient may ever experience is gum disease. Not only do countless patients of all ages deal with this condition every single day, it can cause serious damage to the mouth if it is left untreated. For those that would like the best chance at avoiding any major health complications, it is important to seek out treatment options as quickly as possible. This is why our dentist is proud to offer all of the leading restorative dentistry treatments for gum disease, including thorough scaling and root planning.
Gum disease will most often occur due to a buildup of plaque and bacteria on the teeth of the patient. When these substances remain in the mouth and are not removed by brushing, flossing, and the regular trips to the dentist, they will interact with any future foods to produce bacteria. Over time, these patients will have their gums, teeth, and bones attacked, often causing irreversible damage to the mouth. As with many of the health complications that take place within the mouth, the most effective treatment options, such as scaling and root planning, will take place in the earliest stages of disease.
Scaling and root planning is carried out if the patient’s gums have slowly begun to recede from the teeth and there is serious buildup of plaque on the base of the teeth near the roots. Our dentist will begin with a thorough cleaning of the teeth and the gums, and there may be a need for the use of local anesthetics or antibiotics. This treatment can often be carried out in a single appointment that will be both quick and painless, allowing patients to quickly move past this debilitating condition.
If you or someone you love may be struggling with gum disease, do not hesitate in making a call to our dental practice. We are proud to offer all of the leading treatments, including scaling and root planning, that will help patients avoid some of the major side effects of this disease that is both common and life-altering.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
