Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is the most common form of periodontal treatment, and it involves two major procedures. First, plaque and tartar accumulation will be thoroughly removed from around and underneath the gum tissue, which is the “scaling” portion. Next, we will target the roots of the teeth and smooth out rough spots along the surfaces that are common targets for dangerous bacteria. This approach helps promote healthy gum reattachment over time.

Gingival (Gum) Grafts

In the event that large amounts of infected or decayed gum tissue need to be removed, our in-house periodontist will perform what is called a gum graft. By using the “tunnel technique,” we can effectively replace damaged tissue with Aloderm. This donated tissue has been clinically proven to restore gum tissue and protect the vulnerable areas of your teeth, such as the roots. We’ll go over your treatment in great detail beforehand, and with the help of our soft tissue laser, ensure the most comfortable experience possible.

Dental Implant Placement

While there are multiple solutions for replacing missing teeth following gum disease, dental implants are by far the most complete treatment and offer the longest-lasting results. We're capable of performing the implant placement procedure ourself, and Dr. Neelima Ravi, DMD, FAGD can attach them to someone’s new teeth. This one-stop approach ensures that your treatment experience is more convenient, comfortable, and comprehensive.
