Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment
- For treatment of gum disease associated with deep perio pockets
- For treatment of generalized progressive recession defects
Our non-surgical periodontal treatments are state-of-the-art treatments that are safe and effective in arresting the progression of periodontal disease. These treatments utilize a combination of medications to change the way susceptible individuals react to bacteria along with microscopic calculus removal using a combination of traditional scaling and root planing followed by perioscopy.
Perioscopy is a non-surgical technique that allows us to see the root surface directly and under tremendous magnification with a fiber optic device measuring less than one millimeter in diameter. Perioscopy also allows us to diagnose such problems as cracked teeth, cavities under the gum line, leaking margins of crowns and other diverse problems through direct visualization under the gum line.
