PERIODONTAL TREATMENTS IN CANCUN
Scaling and root planing is the most common and conservative form of treatment for periodontal (gum) disease
Scaling is the removal of calculus (commonly called tartar) and plaque that attach to the tooth surfaces. The process especially targets the area below the gum line, along the root.
Plaque is a sticky substance, full of bacteria, that forms on teeth. When plaque hardens over time, it is called calculus.
Plaque is more likely to stick to rough surfaces. For this reason, the root surface is made smooth in a process called root planing. Root planing removes any remaining calculus and smooths irregular areas of the root surface.

Are you always hearing about the benefits of Lasers in Dentistry - Here are 3 points from the American Academy of Periodontology: #Keepinformed
CAN THE USE OF LASERS IN PERIODONTAL THERAPY HARM PATIENTS?
Yes and no. Each laser has different wavelengths and power levels that can be used safely during different periodontal procedures. However, damage to periodontal tissues can result if a laser with an inappropriate wavelength and/or power level is used during a periodontal procedure.
DOES THE RESEARCH ON LASERS SUPPORT THEIR USE IN PERIODONTICS AT THIS TIME?
At this time, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that any specific laser wavelength is superior to the traditional treatment methods of the common periodontal diseases, such as periodontitis.
CAN I TRUST THE CLAIMS IN AN AD FOR PERIODONTAL THERAPY PERFORMED WITH A LASER?
It is important to beware of advertising that sounds too good to be true because it very well may be. A dental professional can help you separate fact from hype.
