Scaling & Root Planing
When caught early, gum disease can usually be treated using a deep cleaning, which consists of scaling and root planing. Scaling involves physically removing the tartar and bacteria accumulated below the gum line (which is causing the infection), and then the roots of the teeth are “planed,” or smoothed. This prevents harmful buildup around the gum line in the future.
Arestin Antibiotic Therapy
Arestin antibiotic therapy enables us to treat gum disease without having a patient take an oral antibiotic. Instead, a fine powder is applied to the gums, and over the course of several days, it slowly dissolves, bathing the tissues in a potent medicine. This attacks the infection directly, plus it shrinks the small pockets between the gums and teeth where bacteria tends to hide.
