Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing
Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing
If you think you might need a periodontal scaling and root planing, call us today and one of our helpful staff members can schedule an appointment for you.
A periodontal scaling and root planing is done to help stop the progression of gum disease. When gum disease develops, small pockets form between the teeth and gums. These pockets allow debris, plaque and bacteria to thrive, further infecting the soft tissue and causing the progression of the disease. Scaling and root planings, sometimes referred to as deep cleanings, can help to keep these gingival pockets clean.

What our patients say
My association with Dr. Yamaguchi goes back many years. She was just out of school when I first started seeing her and, even at that time, was far superior to any dentist I had previously seen. During the time I have been seeing Dr. Yamaguchi, I have had extensive dental work done. It has always been excellent. She is an absolute perfectionist and the end result is excellent, top quality work. As a patient, I greatly appreciate the time, persistence and expertise she has consistently provided. I very highly recommend Dr. Yamaguchi, as well as her entire staff. They follow her lead in professionalism and sincere desire to assist you in any way necessary. I consider Dr. Yamaguchi to be the best dentist I have ever had , and I have had several. I wish I had been able to go to her years before she opened her practice. In my opinion, there is no better dentist.
For many years now I have received excellent care from Dr. Yamaguchi at Dental Arts and Wellness. The office has a nice, luxury "spa" feel to it. The staff is friendly and professional. She has all the newest equipment for treatment. This is really a great place to have your dental work done; highly recommended.
Update: I recently had my periodontal therapy completed by Diana. I just cannot emphasize enough the magnitude of her skill and knowledge. With a gentle hand & thorough understanding, Diana was most effective in her therapy. The dedication of this team and each of it's members really shines as you are guided on a journey toward wellness! Dr Yamaguchi and her team are nothing short of amazing. As both a member of the practice and a patient, I have to say - I will be traveling 4 hours for my dental needs now that I've relocated from Portland! The quality of service is beyond what you'd experience at a typical dental office. From the ongoing & extensive training in oral medicine, to the level of cleanliness maintained throughout, Dr Y and her team have found a way to provide what whole-health practitioners have been striving to establish.
"Had an amazing experience here! As someone whose very scared of western medicine in general I was blown away! They took care of my teeth and gums in the best way without any fearful procedures including antibiotics or the like. I have a new outlook on dentistry and an utmost respect because of them. I had the rootscaling and planing done for periodontal disease which was very serious. My gums started receding and bleeding extremely profusely. It happened so rapidly and my gums were looking full of pus and infected and very nasty. They were able to stop it in its tracks with this procedure along with laser treatment and my teeth look and feel better than ever. I have no insurance and the price was decent considering. Dr. Yamaguchi was so encouraging and sweet and explained the ins and outs of it all which helped cuz I like to understand the whys of things. My hygienist Anne was so supportive sweet and effective when doing the procedures. Had such a great experience I gave em all a hug. I’ll definitely be back!"
