Scaling &
Root Planing

In order to remove harmful plaque and tartar and stop your gum infection from spreading further, deep cleaning must be performed. This method is designed to reach beneath the gum tissue as well as above it. This goes further than traditional cleanings and is generally completed more often throughout the year. Deep cleaning consists of scaling (which involves removing plaque from areas above and beneath gum tissue) and root planing (which includes smoothing out the roots of teeth so they can reattach to the gums.)

Antibiotic Therapy

Following your comprehensive deep cleaning treatment, we’ll need to make sure that the gums are getting the attention they need to heal properly (as well as prevent the infection from coming back.) To ensure you’re getting the best treatment available, we make use of OralDNA testing to confirm which oral pathogens are putting your gum health at risk. With this data, we can ensure that you’re gum therapy is as curated to you as possible.

Laser Periodontal Therapy

Too often, severe levels of gum disease can leave gum tissue beyond repair. This can lead to dentists removing gum tissue unnecessarily. Thankfully, Stonebriar Smile Design does everything it can to maintain as much healthy gum tissue as possible. We do this by implementing the Waterlase soft tissue laser into our treatments. With it, we can perform gum therapy with greater precision, keep your healthy gum tissue intact, and reduce healing times following your therapy.
