Why Choose Grand Dental – South Elgin for Gum Disease Treatment?

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a two-step system that is commonly referred to as deep cleaning. It works to eliminate bacteria and encourage gum reattachment. Dr. Siewert will remove plaque from above and below the gumline as part of the scaling process before smoothing out your tooth roots to make it harder for bacteria to reattach in the future. This is known as root planing. Depending on the severity of your case, you may be required to undergo more frequent deep cleanings to keep bacteria from accumulating.

Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry

When bacteria spreads, it can reach areas that specialized instruments cannot. As a result, additional treatment must be provided to eradicate it completely. With the help of a soft tissue laser, we can better reach various areas of the mouth that are plagued by bacteria. Using its concentrated beam of light, it can remove infected tissue, eliminate the need for sutures, and cauterize to minimize bleeding. This allows for faster recovery so that you can return to normal activity much sooner.

Advanced Periodontal Procedures
