Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing represent the standard way to treat gum disease. Combined, they act as a two-step procedure that cleans the affected tissue. The first step – scaling – uses various dental tools to remove tartar above and below the gumline. In contrast, root planing smooths out your tooth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth. Altogether, the scaling-planing process often occurs over one or two dental visits.

Antibiotic Treatment

On top of scaling and root planing, we might recommend an antibiotic treatment. This option puts a few thousand ARESTIN® microspheres at the site of your infection. Once placed, these tiny bits of the antibiotic will fight against the bacteria causing your gum disease. You’ll then see a marked reduction in your gum pockets after 14 days or so.
