Our Periodontic Services

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing is a non-surgical periodontal treatment that involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothing the surface of the tooth roots. This helps to remove bacteria and reduce inflammation, which can lead to healthier gums and teeth. We use not only hand and ultrasonic instruments but also adjunctive services such as Arestin, which is a localized antibiotic to reduce pocket depth. We also use a strong topical anesthetic to numb the gums to avoid injections during deep cleaning.

Bone Regeneration

Bone Regeneration is a periodontal treatment that involves rebuilding the bone around teeth that have been affected by periodontal disease. This treatment is typically used when the bone has been lost due to gum disease or tooth extraction. We will guide you through which treatment is needed according to your needs.

FAQ’s Periodontic Dentistry

How long does it take for gums to heal from periodontitis?

Early to moderate periodontal disease can take about 2 to 3 weeks to heal. However, healing can only occur with the proper intervention such as scaling and root planing. For severe Periodontal disease, the recovery times do vary. For example, with the proper treatment, some patients can recover in 5 to 8 weeks.

Should I go to dentist with periodontitis?

If you have swollen, tender or bleeding gums, tell your dentist. They can help you get rid of infection and get back on track to healthy teeth and gums.
