Today we want to share some information about a gum disease treatment called scaling and root planing that is featured in the ADA video clip below. This is a service that has saved many a smile from tooth loss and other bad consequences. Basically, while using special dental tools, we can remove (scale) plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gum-line in all of those areas where you just can’t reach when you are brushing and flossing. Then we will smooth (plane) the roots to make it difficult for bacteria to regrow there in the future. It sounds easy because it is easy! We can also use a local antibiotic called Arestin which eliminates more expansive bacteria pockets below your gum-line so that your gums have a chance to heal better after the procedure. We’ll apply it directly on your gums, so you won’t have to worry about taking any medication. If you have any questions about gum disease or any other oral health issue, don’t hesitate to call Johnson Dentistry at 979-279-8839 or fill out our online form to request your future appointment in Bryan, TX.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Great dentist and staff. Lots of good information and lays all your options out for anything that needs to be done.
Great experience! Staff is very nice and friendly. It has been several years since I have been to the dentist and they did not make me feel bad at all. They also answered all my questions and were overall very helpful.
I have been going to Dr. Johnson for 7 years. His staff is friendly and professional. He is straight to the point with treatment plans and works efficiently. His staff does their best to get you on the schedule and rescheduled. I’ve personally have recommend Dr. Johnson to immediately family and multiple friends/coworkers.
The office is sparkling clean and the staff take every precaution to ensure the hygiene and health of their patients. Every person I was in contact with, from the people at the front desk, the young woman who took me back to get me settled and take my pulse and X-ray (I am so sorry I forgot your name!), the dental hygienist (Kayla), and, of course, Dr. Johnson, are extremely personable, respectful, polite, and have a wonderful attitude! My family and I have been coming to Dr. Johnson for years and it is like visiting family. At the same time, the care, attention to detail, and the scope of the exam is comprehensive and professional. Love Dr. Johnson and his staff!
Always feel taken care of at Johnson Dentistry! And always a pleasant experience as well!
