If it has been longer than a year since your last professional teeth cleaning, it is possible that you will require periodontal scaling, or cleaning of the tooth below the gum line. Stubborn tartar deposits can develop in these hard-to-reach areas, resulting in tooth decay or gum disease. If these conditions are already present, Our doctors can use advanced tools, including ultrasonic technology, to remove these deposits and treat any damage that has occurred in the tooth or surrounding gum tissue. In some cases, a tooth root may require planing. This means that the texture of the tooth was made rough during the cleaning, and it needs to be made smooth again to allow gum tissue to better attach itself and foster proper healing. To ensure your comfort through these treatments, we can administer a local anesthetic.
