Periodontal Treatment


Dr. Malon and Dr. Moran offer conservative, non-surgical gum treatment. If your gums cannot be made healthy by brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings, you may need another type of treatment, called root planing, also known as a “deep cleaning”. A local anesthetic is given, and then the teeth and gums are treated to remove deposits that cannot be removed by a regular cleaning. Later, at a follow-up appointment, the gums will be examined to determine the effectiveness of the root planing.
