Professional Dental Cleaning
We first need to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on your teeth. It is important to remove any harmful bacteria that could exacerbate your gum disease. This is done in our office by our experienced staff.
Our in-depth cleaning ensures that all build-up is thoroughly removed from both below and above the gum line.
Most people are recommended to have at least two cleanings and exams every year. If you have gum disease, our dentist might have you come in for more to make sure you get the proper treatment.
Scaling and Root Planing
You will be put under anesthesia for this procedure. This allows us to completely remove any signs of plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth. This process involves the scraping away of the hardened build-up, leaving you with clean, fresh teeth. We will also smooth out any areas of your teeth that have become rough.
In the event that surgery and anesthesia aren’t needed, we turn to antibiotics. We place these in the periodontal pocket in your mouth to remove plaque and reduce inflammation.
