Gum Disease Therapy
Gum disease therapy is an alternative to surgical treatment of gum disease. We use a combination of root planing, scaling and antibiotics. Root planing focuses on teeth roots and removing rough spots from them. Scaling addresses the area below the gum line and works to remove plaque and tartar that builds there. An ultrasonic scaling tool may be used to conduct root planing and scaling. Antibiotics are positioned between the teeth and gums to speed the healing process.
