Halt and even reverse gum disease with scaling & root planing

Scaling and root planing are thorough cleanings without surgery for periodontal (gum) disease. During these deep cleanings, the gums are numbed, and specialized tools are used to clean deep pockets below the gumline where standard cleaning can't reach.

Scaling removes plaque and tartar from the tooth's surface, while root planing smooths the tooth's roots to help the gums reattach and stay healthy.

During the scaling process, we will use special instruments to remove the plaque and tartar from the root and surface of the crown.

During the root planing process, we will remove the dentin and cementum and then use special tools to smooth the root of your tooth. Doing so will help reduce the possibility of bacteria from developing.

Dr. Ryan Platt was absolutely amazing! My daughter was seen by him instead of her regular dentist because he was on vacation, and he got her in right away and took care of her better than I could have imagined! She is only seven and had to get a tooth pulled right away. The fear in my daughter and myself took over, but Dr. Platt assured us both and cared for her with flying colors.

Dr. Platt has been helping my husband with TMJ-related discomfort. He and the entire staff were incredibly helpful and friendly! Thanks to all of them for their compassion and eagerness to help!

After having cancer in my jaw, I was very scared to see a dentist. Dr. Platt was incredible and made me feel like we were in this together. He heard me (and my fears) and gave me so many options that together, we could find a plan I was comfortable with. He is the first dentist I’ve gone to in 46 years, and it didn’t hurt, and for me, that’s huge! He’s allowed me to not be ashamed of my smile.

I came to this practice in a state of pure panic and chaos. From my first interaction over the phone, I immediately felt that I could trust their entire staff. The Platts are both very knowledgeable and skilled, and I am eternally grateful to them. They helped me overcome my dental anxiety and regain confidence in my smile. I live over an hour away, and they are worth the drive.

What a great dental practice! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! Each room has a view of the beautiful botanical garden, which is stunning and relaxing. My dental hygienist, “Bonnie,” was so friendly and informative about my cleaning procedure. Dr. Platt is a warm and caring dentist who made me feel comfortable and welcome! I highly recommend this dental practice!

Absolutely fantastic!! I had an emergency, and Dr. Platt was able to see me within 90 minutes. He was able to extract the tooth right there. All the staff were friendly and provided excellent service. He is now my new dentist.

Very friendly office staff. Dr. Platt is personable and knowledgeable. My hygienist, Bonnie, was extremely gentle, proficient, and kind. I knew I was getting great care, and Bonnie took the time to hand scale and measure each tooth.
