Routine Examinations and Cleanings

Regular check-ups are crucial. We thoroughly assess your gums for any signs of periodontal disease, such as redness, swelling, or bleeding. Professional cleanings are also a part of our regimen, removing plaque and tartar build-up that regular brushing can’t handle.

Scaling and Root Planing

For patients showing early signs of gum disease, we offer scaling and root planing – a deep cleaning procedure. This involves meticulously removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line and smoothing out the tooth roots to help gums reattach to the teeth.

Periodontal Maintenance

Post-treatment, we provide comprehensive maintenance plans, including more frequent cleanings and check-ups, to ensure the health of your gums and prevent recurrence.
