Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy

For mild cases of periodontal disease, a non-surgical option known as scaling and root planing may be available.  During your examination, pockets of 4-6mm may be appropriate for this therapy, as this will allow for our hygiene team to adequately remove the bacterial deposits that are causing your issues.  Scaling and root planing is typically performed under local anesthesia and has little to no recovery time.
