Gingivitis - Deep Pocket Cleaning

Periodontal Treatment

As gingivitis and periodontitis progress, it becomes more difficult to cleanse the pockets between the soft tissues and the teeth.  The clinician can scale and root plane the teeth (sometimes under local anesthetic) to remove debris and infection-causing bacteria.



In order to expose more of the natural tooth, Dr. Mahmood can remove some of the surrounding gingival tissue as well as bone levels in a minimally traumatic way with Waterlase.
