Protect Your Smile And Your Nerves With The Latest In Dental Technology

 You may think surgery is the only solution to gum disease. That’s far from the case! At Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S., we offer a treatment that requires zero surgery: scaling and root planing. You might hear us refer to this as periodontal or “perio” therapy.

  • Scaling your teeth is a type of deep cleaning that will remove plaque, tartar, bacteria, and toxins from the surfaces of your teeth and roots, even under your gumline.
  • Root planing will smooth out all the rough surfaces of your roots. Like the polish your enamel gets from a dental cleaning, planing will make your roots too smooth for bacteria or plaque to cling to them.

By using scaling and root planing to thoroughly clean your teeth, we can keep your gum disease in check and protect your smile. And our use of a Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler means a more comfortable experience than you would get with traditional dental tools.

If your gums are red, bleeding, or both, call our Ruston, LA office today at 318-255-8648 for our expert gum disease treatment.
