Treatment Concepts

Our treatment concepts and goals are to help you correct and maintain your periodontal disease. This includes:


  • Scaling and root planing (explained under "Procedures") to remove excess calculus underneath the gum line and to get a better idea of how advanced your periodontal issue is.
  • If necessary, periodontal surgery (as specified from your initial evaluation/reevaluation) to reduce pockets, thus making it easier for you to keep areas cleaner with home care.
  • A stable occlusion; whether it be with an occlusal adjustment or use of an acrylic night guard.
  • Regular periodontal cleanings to maintain gum pockets.
