Periodontal Care in San Diego, CA
Scaling and Root Planing
The non-surgical approach requires a deep periodontal cleaning performed by our Hygienist. The procedure will remove the build-up calculus and harmful bacteria from under the gum allowing the periodontal tissue to be more receptive to quality home care and maintenance through our Periodontal Maintenance Program.
This anti-microbial treatment is used in conjunction with scaling and root planning when needed. An antibiotic is placed directly at the site of the infection and offers an immediate response.
Laser Therapy ( Laser Bacteria Reduction)
This cutting-edge technology offers a new revolution in the treatment of periodontal disease. A laser is used to “sterilize” the area predominately engulfed with bacteria. This procedure is recommended in conjunction with Scaling and Root planning in gum therapy.
