In the event that periodontal disease is found in the initial stage, also known as gingivitis, it can be addressed with in-office teeth cleaning and an elevated focus on an at-home oral hygiene routine. However, if the gum disease develops into the next stage, known as periodontitis, Dr. Junée F. Gardy may suggest scaling and root planing (SRP) treatments. Scaling and root planing is a periodontal disease treatment that removes buildup, tartar, and unwanted bacteria from underneath your gumline. If you show signs of periodontitis, set up an appointment at Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA to learn about scaling and root planing.

Scaling and root planing at our Naples, FL practice is frequently performed in various areas of your mouth over 1 – 4 visits. To ensure that you stay relaxed and calm, Dr. Gardy might numb the area by offering a local anesthetic. Other sedation options are also available if you feel anxious while having dental treatments. Once you are prepped, we will use an advanced tooth scaler and hand tools to carefully remove tartar and plaque from within your periodontal pockets. The tooth root surfaces will then be smoothed (planed) to lessen the regions where harmful bacteria may accumulate. Topically delivered antibiotics may also be administered deep into the gum pockets to enhance oral wellness and slow bacterial growth.

Dr. Gardy worked on my molar that needed root canal work by Dr. Layton. She did a crown that was absolutely perfect with the margins so tight and you just can't tell it's a crown. You'll be very pleased with her very professional offices and staff.
