Dr. Hamin offers Prevora, an antibacterial tooth coating to help prevent tooth decay and cavities.
Scaling and root planing is one of the most effective, non-surgical ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe. Scaling and root planing cleans between the gums and the teeth down to the roots.
Scaling is the process of removing dental tartar from the surfaces of the teeth.
Root planing is the process of smoothing out the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure.
If you have gum disease or gum pocketing, the gum pockets around the teeth will have deepened, allowing tartar deposits to form under the gum line. A careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and smoothing the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins will help ensure that your gum disease is controlled.
Remember, scaling and root planing is a simple procedure that can help stop gum disease. If you maintain good dental care after the procedure, the progression of your gum disease should stop, and your gums will heal and become firm and pink again in no time!
