The following materials and techniques may be used in your nonsurgical periodontal therapy:

  • Hand held instruments known as scalers and ultrasonics to clean the teeth.
  • Local anesthetic (numbing) to control sensitivity.
  • Antibacterial rinses to help decrease plaque and calculus.
  • Antibiotic and antiviral pills to help kill bacteria and viruses and reduce the destructive response some people have to periodontal infections.
  • Laser treatment to control bacterial levels around affected areas.
