Periodontal Treatments

Scaling and root planing is a more specialized type of cleaning that is needed when there is periodontal disease or inflammation of the gums or gingival tissue. Periodontal disease can be mild and reversible like gingivitis, or more advanced and severe like periodontitist, which indicates there has been some level of bone loss around the tooth. When patients come in for a cleaning and examination, we diagnose any problem and recommend the type of cleaning they need. We refer extensive periodontal work to a periodontist.
