Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease which uses specific instruments to remove harmful bacteria, deposits, and infection around affected teeth. Once these specific organisms and bacteria have been removed, a patient’s gum can slowly return to a natural healthy state.
Broadway Perio is proud to offer a staff of hygienists with extensive experience in the specialized cleaning of teeth and gums with periodontal disease. Each session will typically consist of a thorough deep cleaning and education on how to care for your gums at home.
A patient who is referred by their dentist to a periodontal office will usually have a gum condition that will require cleanings on a more frequent basis than the usual twice-a-year interval. Once Dr. Karastathis or Dr. Roemermann assesses the state of your gums, they will prepare a personalized cleaning schedule specific to your needs.
