Our philosophy of treatment is that periodontal health should be achieved in a conservative manner. The initial stages of treatment are aimed at soft tissue healing by careful removal of plaque and calculus (tartar) below the gum line .This is often accomplished through non-surgical periodontal treatment, including scaling and root planing. The roots must be planed to remove bacterial toxins. After Scaling and root planing, the gum tissue heals, swelling of inflamed tissues is reduced and reattachment of the gum tissue is established . Scaling and root planing may be followed by adjunctive therapy such as local delivery antimicrobials and host modulation, as needed on a case-by-case basis.
Non-Surgical therapy does have its limitations. When it does not achieve periodontal health, surgery may be indicated to restore periodontal anatomy damaged by periodontal diseases and to facilitate oral hygiene practices.
