Dr. Carp, Dr. Oh, Dr. Yu, and Dr. Goldwater provide scaling and root planing methods to treat gum disease before it progresses to a dangerous level.

We offer scaling and root planing in Norristown, Pennsylvania, to deeply clean between the teeth and gums, down to the roots. Our team at Carp Dental wants to keep our patients’ smiles healthy and strong, and we are happy to provide this service to do the job.

This process includes your dentist numbing your gums and roots of your teeth. We will use a tool that is ultrasonic to plan and scale your teeth. It is more comfortable than an ordinary scraping tool, and it is specially made for this situation. Your dentist will then insert medication into the pockets below your teeth that speed the healing process and prevent further infection. You will come back to the office about one week later and remove the medication from the pockets. After the treatment is finished, your lips and gums might continue to feel numb and tingly for a few hours. After the numbing fades, you may experience little to no discomfort.
