We do everything we can to eliminate an infection in the mouth and use the latest techniques to ensure lasting results.
Scaling & Root Planing
This is a very effective nonsurgical treatment for periodontal disease, especially of patients in the early stages of gum disease. It works to reduce periodontal pocketing by up to three millimeters. Scaling and root planing involves numbing the area with local anesthesia and using a set of small instruments and an ultrasonic tool to remove plaque and calculus buildup around the tooth. This deep cleaning process helps to clear away areas that harbor bacteria and we can smooth out the surface of the teeth so the gums can reattach to the teeth.
The office and staff was very friendly and courteous. They have the latest technology for dental use.Lee J.
If you have already been treated for gum disease and are cleared of any infection, you may still need to come in for deep cleanings and regular checkups. We can put together a periodontal maintenance plan that will reduce the risk of the infection returning and further help your gums heal. Your customized plan for periodontal maintenance in Columbia, TN, can help you maintain results after gum disease treatment and protect your gums from further damage. You may be scheduled for three or four dental cleaning visits instead of the standard two during this phase of treatment.
