We offer a two-step process, called scaling and root planing, to help minimize the effects of gum disease and give your mouth a chance to heal. We’ll clear away all plaque and tartar and allow your gum tissue to healthily reattach to your teeth to provide them with the protection they need.
Typically, we recommend antibiotic therapy in combination with scaling and root planing to help your mouth fight off the effects of harmful oral bacteria. We usually administer the antibiotics in the form of a medicated mouthwash, toothpaste, or pill to target your gums and help fight symptoms of the condition.
