Minimally Invasive Deep Cleanings
Scaling and root planing, also called “deep cleaning” is an effective procedure used to treat gum disease. Our periodontist, Dr. Brock Lynn, believes in utilizing the most conservative and comfortable treatments available. This is why he recommends nonsurgical treatments like scaling and root planing to treat mild to moderate gum disease and as an alternate to osseous surgery.
Before scaling and root planing treatment begins, a local anesthetic can be applied to ensure complete comfort. The steps of scaling and root planing include:
- Removing tartar from the teeth and below the gumline
- Planing and smoothing of the tooth, making it more difficult for bacteria to attach.
As a final touch, an ND-YAG Laser is used to eliminate any persistent bacteria. This allows the gum tissue to reattach to the tooth and properly heal. After treatment, we advise our patients to maintain results with a diligent oral hygiene routine and use a prescription mouth rinse.

Ozone Therapy Controls Bacteria
At Lynn Dental Care, we frequently combine scaling and root planing treatments with modern ozone therapy to prevent the return of disease-causing bacteria. By incorporating ozone therapy with your gum disease treatments, we are able to eliminate and prevent the return of over 63 different bacteria, 15 viruses, 25 fungi and mold spores, as well as 13 fungal pathogens. All of these carefully executed steps will keep your mouth fresh and healthy after a scaling and root planing treatment.
