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.
