Scaling & Root Planing

The bacteria in your mouth can build up on the roots of your teeth below the gum line where they’re typically hidden from the scope of a normal dental cleaning. Treating gum disease means getting rid of this oral bacteria no matter where it’s hiding, which is where scaling and root planing come in. Scaling is the process of removing the bacteria from the teeth while root planing gives the nearby gum tissue a smooth surface to reattach to.

Antibiotic Therapy

A single treatment isn’t always enough to stop a gum infection. To continue fighting your periodontitis, we may prescribe antibiotic therapy as needed. This might come in the form of a pill that is swallowed, but it might also involve a medication that is applied directly to the space between the teeth and gums, or in the pockets that gum disease tends to form. You will likely need to undergo antibiotic therapy for weeks before the infection has been completely eliminated.
