Laser Periodontal Therapy

Our Picasso dental laser is an advanced form of therapy that is used to reduce periodontal pockets and perform deep cleanings. It will target bad oral bacteria that spread beneath the gumline, eliminating harmful particles while avoiding healthy tissue. Not only is it fast and effective, but it is completely safe and a more comfortable option for patients.

Scaling & Root Planing

Once gingivitis is detected, our team can administer scaling and root planing. Known as deep cleaning, we can clear away bacteria and plaque around the base of teeth and below the gumline (scaling) before reaching deeper into the gum pockets to smooth tooth roots to encourage healing, reattachment of the gum tissue, and minimize the chance of reinfection in the future (root planing).

Antibiotic Therapy

When gum pockets are evident, we can administer antibiotic therapy to encourage faster healing. Using what is known as Arestin, the medication is applied directly to the pockets so that it will disperse over several weeks. Eliminating hard-to-reach areas of bacteria, the medicine is most commonly used in combination with scaling and root planing and laser periodontal therapy.
