Diagnosis and Evaluation
The first step in treating periodontal disease is a thorough diagnosis and evaluation by our experienced dentists, Dr. Brian Tuttle and Dr. Stephen Bryant. They will examine your gums, measure the depth of the pockets around your teeth, and take X-rays to assess the extent of the disease.
Scaling and Root Planing
Once the severity of your periodontal disease is determined, the next step is scaling and root planing. This non-surgical procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces and smoothing out the root surfaces to promote gum reattachment and prevent further bacteria buildup.
