Periodontal therapies include:


Deep gum cleaning


Scaling and root planing

Periodontis is a dangerous gum disease that can lead to tooth loss if not treated.

Scaling and root planing are two techniques for removing periodontis-causing bacteria from below your gum line. These are non-surgical techniques and can be completed under a local anesthetic.

After treatment, we recommend coming in at least twice a year for preventative care cleanings so we can detect and stop recurrent gum infections.

Scaling is a deep cleaning technique that removes plaque from your tooth under your gums.

Root planing involves scraping and smoothing rough areas of the tooth root. When the tooth root has been planed, bacteria can be scraped away.

“I have been blown away by such an amazing and kind team. It has been awhile since I’ve experienced such an excellent care/service from a healthcare office. I’ve been seeing Dr. Laing and I cannot say enough how caring, knowledgeable and compassionate she is, such a gem! She went far and beyond my expectations. Thank you!”
