What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection attacking the foundation of your teeth. It is usually caused by plaque and calculus build-up around the gumline. If your body doesn’t respond well to this invasion, it will lead to tooth loss. Other symptoms include:
Swollen gums that bleed easily
Bad breath (halitosis)
Gum recession and bone loss
Scaling & Root Planing (SRP)
Scaling and root planing is one of the most common non-surgical methods for stopping gum disease in its tracks.
The dentist will smooth any rough areas on your roots’ surfaces.
This advanced dental cleaning removes bacteria, keeps plaque and tartar from re-adhering underneath your gum line, and encourages your gums to heal and reattach themselves more firmly.

What to expect from your treatment
Laser periodontal therapy is a full-mouth procedure that can be completed in just one visit.
After gently numbing your mouth, we’ll use the high-tech biolase 940nm to remove diseased tissue and bacteria from the affected areas. Ultrasonic instruments will then remove any tartar from the roots of your teeth.
As a final step, we’ll use the laser to seal the treated area, allowing your gums and bone to regenerate.
Typical recovery time is less than 24 hours. Plus, there’s virtually no risk of infection. You’ll see an improvement in your gums right away!
