Root Planing Dentist

Our dentists, Drs. Lydia and Randy Muccioli, and our talented dental hygienists are experts when it comes to scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease, before it becomes severe. This non-surgical treatment involves deeply cleaning between the gums and the teeth, down to the root to stop the progression of gum disease. In some cases, an antibiotic may be placed in the pockets between the gums and the teeth to help speed the healing process and to prevent infection. This highly effective procedure causes minimal discomfort, however, you may be offered a local anesthetic to numb your gum tissues prior to undergoing this deep cleaning process.

After scaling and root planing has been performed on your mouth, it is very important to maintain proper oral hygiene at home to prevent gum disease from reoccurring. Our dedicated dentists and dental hygienists will be happy to discuss good oral hygiene habits that will promote a lifetime of good oral health.
