Let us help you defend your teeth against periodontitis.
Scaling and root planning are the first line of defense against periodontitis. These procedures entail a careful cleaning of the crown and root surfaces under the gums to remove bacteria, toxins, and tartar (calculus) that build up in the pocket. In order to maximize patient comfort, a local anesthetic is used. Nitrous oxide analgesia can also be administered to help alleviate apprehension.
