Treating Gum Disease with Scaling and Root Planing
Patients diagnosed with gum disease can restore the health of their gums with scaling and root planing therapy. Dr. Ryan Horn, Dr. Barron Hong, and Dr. Meetu Moody and Dr. Anand Maharathi are all trained to perform this nonsurgical periodontal procedure. The treatment involves removing plaque and bacteria around the gums and smoothing out the surface of the teeth using ultrasonic tools. The deep cleaning process allows the gums to reattach to the surface of the teeth, eliminating periodontal pockets by up to three millimeters after a single treatment.
