Scaling and Root Planing
At Main Family Dental, we offer scaling and root planing to treat the early stages of gum disease. Going beyond traditional cleanings, this procedure provides relief from discomfort, reduces gum bleeding, and prevents future issues.
Scaling and root planing can:
- Effectively remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial deposits from above and below the gumline.
- Reduce inflammation and gum bleeding for improved comfort.
- Minimize pockets that can trap harmful bacteria, promoting healthier gum tissue.
- Smooth tooth root surfaces, making it harder for bacteria to adhere and cause damage.
- Strengthen support for your teeth and restore gum health.
Arestin Antibiotic Therapy
Arestin is used in combination with scaling and root planing to treat gum disease. Applied directly to the infected areas, Arestin works continuously to improve your gum health, enhance treatment results, and restore your confident smile. Trust us to protect your gums and ensure your well-being.
