Laser Periodontal Therapy

Traditional scalpels and sutures are no longer the go-to tools that our team uses when treating problems associated with soft oral tissues. Instead, our Picasso dental laser creates a more efficient way to eliminate bad bacteria. Reducing gum pockets and removing plaque and tartar from teeth, the concentrated beam of light leaves healthy tissues alone while effectively removing infected tissues more comfortably.

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-part process that requires clearing away harmful bacteria to encourage faster healing of gum tissues. Scaling involves our team removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline, while root planing includes smoothing out your tooth roots so that gums will begin to reattach, and the chances of reinfection remain slim.

Antibiotic Therapy

Gum pocket formation is common when dealing with gum disease, which is why antibiotic therapy is a safe and effective way to reach the smallest areas of bacteria. Arestin is applied to the pockets and disperses over several weeks. Eliminating any harmful debris that exists, the medication will also help in healing the gum tissue. Antibiotic therapy is commonly used alongside other forms of gum disease treatment to create a more cohesive approach.
