Periodontal/Gum Therapy/Deep Cleanings

periodontal diseaseWe know that part of a healthy smile is coming in for your semi-annual cleanings. With ultrasonic vibrations, hand scaling, polish and floss, we can make your teeth feel fresh and clean.
Sometimes however, we need more than a regular cleaning. Hard mineral deposits build up as calculus and tartar, causing the gums to pull away from teeth or roots. As a result, the bone and the natural tooth support system is lost and compromised, resulting in gum disease. We treat gum disease with scaling and root planing, irrigation and antibiotics if necessary.
