Scaling & Root Planing
When bacteria and plaque form around teeth and gums, our team will use scaling and root planing to stop the spread and restore the health of your soft oral tissues. Dr. Knott will begin by gently removing plaque and tartar build-up (scaling) before smoothing the tooth’s root (root planing) to encourage reattachment and minimize the chances of plaque adhering in the future.
To help reduce your risk for reinfection, Dr. Knott can apply Arestin, which is a form of antibiotic therapy used in conjunction with scaling and root planing. Placed inside the gum pockets, it kills bacteria and protects the tissue. You may also receive Peridex, which is a rinse that can be used at home to reduce bacteria inside the oral cavity.
