Non-Surgical periodontal therapy is the removal of calculus, toxins, and bacterial biofilm in order to control microbial infection in the gums. You may have also heard of this treatment referred to as scaling and root planing. This non-invasive method of treatment is a cornerstone for the combat and prevention of gum disease. There are many benefits to this treatment, including bite adjustment. The deep cleaning below the gum line, and removal of debris and calculus can help reduce inflammation, reduce pocket depth and generally improve dental health overall. No need to worry about pain, for this treatment is paired with anesthetic for your comfort. After care is a warm salt rinse and your gums will thank you!
