When plaque and calculus build up on your teeth, your gums become irritated and tender, eventually pushing away from your teeth. However, if left untreated, this infection can become really serious.

Comprehensive Scaling / Cleaning and Root Planning
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment that is frequently used as the initial step in the fight against gum disease. Scaling eliminates bacterial plaque and infectious elements from the gumline and above. Root planning smoothen the tooth surfaces supports a healthy tissue reattachment and protects against future infection.
Osseous surgery is the most intensive treatment for severe gum disease. It involves removing the diseased gum tissue and rebuilding the damaged bone to restore tooth support. This procedure also eliminates germs and calculus that have become trapped in the deep spaces between the teeth.
Periodontal maintenance is recommended after gum disease has been thoroughly treated to ensure that it does not reoccur. This procedure is performed every 3-4 months and consists of a thorough cleaning of the teeth above and below the gumline to remove contaminants and plaque buildup. These extensive cleanings will take the place of your regular hygiene checkups.
