Scaling and Root Planning

We normally anesthetize the area for the procedure.  Please avoid eating or drinking extremely hot or cold beverages until the anesthetic wears off. 

We recommend rinsing with Peridex twice daily for two weeks.  Follow this regimen with warm salt water rinses for the next two weeks.  We highly recommend the oral hygiene instructions/home care like brushing and flossing twice daily.

It is very important that follow up visits are maintained to prevent further progress periodontal disease.
