Scaling and root planning:

The objective of scaling and root planing is to remove calculus and tartar from your teeth and gums and prevent disease progression.

Scaling and Root Planing are usually performed with special dental instruments and may include an ultrasonic scaling tool. The scaling tool removes calculus and plaque from the surface of the crown and root surfaces. In many cases, the scaling tool includes an irrigation process that can be used to deliver an antimicrobial agent below the gums that can help reduce oral bacteria.

Arestin therapy :

Arestin is an antibiotic delivered directly to the gums

With ARESTIN, scaling and root( planing (SRP) are more effective than Scaling and Root Planing alone. Arestin is different from regular antibiotics which are usually taken by mouth. Arestin is delivered directly inside the gum to treat gum disease.
