One of the fundamentals of gum therapy is scaling and root planing, which work to remove plaque and promote healing of the gums and tooth roots. Through scaling, we’re able to remove plaque and tartar from all the surfaces of enamel, including the portions that sit below the gum line. Root planing is meant to promote the reattachment of the tooth’s roots to the gum line, preventing bacteria from reaching the most vulnerable areas of your mouth.
Through this unique technique, we can effectively rejuvenate their gum tissue without scalpels, sutures, or gum grafts. It’s a treatment that works to correct gum recession, a very common side effect of gum infection. By creating an incredibly small pinhole inside of gum tissue, we can shift gum tissue into place with very little trauma and no open wounds. After treatment is complete, your gum tissue will shrink down and your gum line will be restored to normal.
