Many people develop gum disease and do not realize how severe the problem is until they notice symptoms like loose teeth or gum recession. Gum disease is caused by harmful oral bacteria that reside in the mouth. Without proper homecare and regular dental visits, the chance of these bacteria wreaking havoc on your gums and bone tissue is extremely high.

How Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment Works

Our talented, gentle dental hygienists have extensive experience performing scaling and root planing, a dental deep cleaning procedure that can effectively treat gum disease. This is a nonsurgical approach to restoring the health of the gums. If you have mild to moderate gum disease, Dr. Patrick Cieplak may recommend scaling and root planing therapy to address your condition.

What to Expect with Scaling and Root Planing

We will schedule your dental deep cleaning procedure after performing a comprehensive oral evaluation and periodontal assessment. We will numb the treatment area before we start the deep cleaning process, so you can just sit back and relax while we get to work.

Scaling and Root Planing Steps

The treatment begins with the removal of tartar and plaque deposits using ultrasonic tools and specialized hand instruments. This helps healthy gum tissues begin to reattach to the tooth structure after the dental deep cleaning is complete. We also flush the treatment area with a refreshing antimicrobial rinse that helps eliminate bacteria. Your gums may be a little tender, but will heal shortly after treatment. We will see you for a follow-up visit to evaluate your healing and progress.

Dr. Cieplak is one of only 3,000 dentists to receive the Academy of General Dentistry’s Master’s Degree.
