Healthy gums are the foundation for stable teeth. Minor periodontal procedures provided include:

  • Scaling and root planing - a deep cleaning performed under local anesthesia
  • Curettage - a similar procedure performed under local anesthesia utilized to treat gingivitis and early periodontitis, or gum disease. 
  • Three Month Recall - Many people can maintain healthy gums simply by having cleanings every three months. 

More advanced disease is referred to a periodontist (gum specialist)
