Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step process that typically takes place over the course of two appointments. During the first, our team will clear away any plaque and tartar attached to the surface of your teeth, as far down as the pockets of your gums. After that, we’ll smooth out the roots of your teeth to allow your gum tissue to healthily reattach to your teeth and provide them with necessary protection.

Antibiotic Therapy

Usually, we recommend antibiotic therapy in combination with scaling and root planing to help fight off harmful oral bacteria that are causing you discomfort. The antibiotics can be administered in the form of a mouthwash or pill, depending on your preference, and will act to target the bacteria that are attacking your gums. It’s important to complete your entire treatment plan of antibiotics to make sure that the bacteria don’t build up a resistance to them.
