Periodontal Treatment

When gum disease is detected, we are able to provide Scaling and Root Planing.  This is often referred to as a “deep cleaning”  The patient is numbed for their comfort and tartar and bacteria are removed from below the gum.  This often is all that is needed to treat gum disease, however sometimes patients are referred to a periodontist (gum specialist) if further treatment is needed for the bone surrounding the teeth.
