Remove Problematic Bacteria With Scaling & Root Planing
Dr. Tygran Pahlevanyan looks for signs of gum disease during every dental exam. It is easier and less costly to treat in its early stages, so early detection is important. Gum disease is caused by bacteria in your mouth that get in between your teeth and gums. If not removed, “pockets” form where even more bacteria collects. We remove the bacteria with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. The treatment also keeps bacteria from getting underneath the gumline, giving your gums a chance to heal.
We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia before the procedure. If you’re nervous or worried about discomfort, you can also get one of our three forms of safe dental sedation.
