Gum Disease Therapy in Gainesville

Scaling & Root Planing

For advanced periodontal disease, you’ll need a deep cleaning process to remove buildup and promote healing.

Early stages of gum disease are manageable and potentially reversible with timely dental cleanings and regular at-home care. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to gum recession, bone loss and eventually, tooth loss. If you’re experiencing symptoms like bleeding when you floss or swollen gums, make an appointment today.

At GoSmiles, our compassionate providers can help diagnose, prevent, and treat gum disease in all its forms and guide you through effective options for gum disease therapy in Gainesville.

Scaling & Root Planing for Gum Disease

Advanced gum disease requires deep cleaning techniques to remove bacteria and buildup above and below the gum line, in gum pockets and in areas of bone loss.

Scaling and root planing are techniques we use that provide deep cleanings that go beyond a routine dental cleaning.

Everyone has gum pockets. Gum Pockets are the space between the gum and the tooth structure. 1-3mm pockets are considered healthy while 4-10mm is considered mild or advanced periodontitis. At each visit, your hygienist will monitor the depth of each pocket and irrigate with antiseptic medication, if inflammation or infection is present.
